When the acid reflux did not calm itself down in my left chest I immediately went to Sharp Urgent Care on Grossmont Center Drive. I was skeptical whether I would be treated remorsefully since I was alone and extremely nervous. The administrators at the front desk were extremely kind and courteous. I was able to complete my forms at the front desk, and not motion to sit down with a clip board. When I completed the documents I was told it would be an hour wait. I nodded and sat down. I pulled out a book and read two pages before I heard my name called. The nurse who attended to me was very, very kind and professional. She asked me lots of questions without being opinionated. She checked my temperature, pulse, and blood pressure, and informed me that doctor would see me momentarily. Within five minutes, Dr. Alejandra (Alex) Diedrich entered and introduced herself. Dr. Diedrich reexamined and asked additional questions. Fortunately, she ruled out that my condition was resulted on the reaction of the acid reflux and nothing related to the heart. However, she proposed an EKG to rule out any possibilities. Within two minutes, the same nurse entered and preformed the EKG. I received immediate results. Dr. Diedrich concluded that I should drink lots of water, take two tablets of ibuprofen, and rest. I should recover from the pain by later that night. She was right. I highly recommend this facility to anyone.

This is by far the best doctor's office I've ever been to. The front check-in staff are always pleasant. highly, highly recommended! It is welcome and refreshing to see a company/business getting back to "customer service."

I come here when I'm not able to see my primary doctor. The staff is great, and they do not make you feel rushed at all. They actually care about how you are feeling. They also send cards after your visit to check up on you.
