April 22, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Javier is just excellent. Best internist I have seen since my physician, X passed. (Also from I of C).

April 12, 2019 7:00 PM

In general, Dr. Javier is personal and engaged and interested. I do get the sense that the depth of the routine physical is not there...not rigorous. however, we started with "I feel GREAT...never better, so maybe that is why

April 4, 2019 7:00 PM

Very satisfactory.

Dr Javier is a new physician to me. This recent visit was my 2nd visit with him. I do like his approach and we seem to be developing a good dialog. I have asked him questions on the portal and his responses have been timely. I look forward to getting much healthier under his guidance.

February 13, 2019 6:00 PM


February 4, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. D. Javier has the best "bedside" manners that I've had the pleasure to experience. Much thanks!!

January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

I made numerous calls to this office between 12/24 and 12/27 without ever getting a call back. Came in without an appt. because I could not get my calls returned. My primary doctor in that office is Dr X who was out of town that week. I was very unhappy that none of my calls were returned by whomever was on call. This makes me think I should switch to a different more responsive medical group. I like Dr X and Dr. Javier but leaving numerous messages with the service and getting not a single call back was very concerning. Also I was told by Dr. Javier that he would call me back on the afternoon of the 26th about a follow up with an ortho doc and he did not do so, despite my further attempts to call.

January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr Javier is very good and takes as much time as you need to allow you to ask questions. he is very caring.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

great visit got a lot done

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

Empathuc,caring,seems knoiwledgeable

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

I am aware that a doctor's visit is not always a pleasant visit but Dr D Javier's bedside manners makes it less of a worry with his non judgmental attitude and professionalism. I was sad when my last PCP quit but I found a "friend" if I may say so. Keep up with the good work Doc.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

dr Javier is the best dr I have ever had and I'm 52 years old he's kind easy to talk to about my health problems I always leave there with a plan on how to get better health wise he's truly a wonderful dr I'm so glad he's mine

Dr. Javier is one of the best providers I have ever had. He is very helpful and listens to what ever my problems are.

March 11, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Javier is absolutely amazing! However, while leaving his office, some woman from behind the reception desk was quite rude. she did not introduce herself, handed me a bill, and quite loudly without respecting my privacy demanded to know when I would be paying, and wanted to know why I would not pay at this visit. she was very rude and that experience was terrible. if Dr. Javier were not so wonderful as a physician I would never return to this office.

February 13, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Javier was very generous with his time. He answered all questions and gave me all the time I needed. He seemed to really care and wanted to fully understand my health needs. He was very good.
