Dr. Almazan does not listen,she talked over me causing me to repeat myself over and over again. Which is definitely frustrating. She also rushes during each visit. I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt, and it's been the same thing every time. some of the nurses are also rude.

My daughter has been going to the diabetes clinic for 10 years now and the staff has always been exceptional with her. She has autism and is a type one diabetic so doctor appointments can be very difficult, but they are always so wonderful with her. I honestly couldn't ask for a better staff.

Dr. Almazan is wonderful! We drive an hour to come to Dayton Children's because the experience and care is the highest you can receive. She is thorough, relatable, and very knowledgeable. Just a great place and doctor for my child.
