Out of 15 reviewers, the majority gave SalusCare's Ortiz campus one out of five stars, indicates Google Plus. Even the one reviewer who gave a five-star rating stated that while the staff does help patients, it is not a nice place. One reviewer complains that the doctor refused to prescribe the medication he had been successfully taking for 25 years, and instead prescribed a medication that cost 10 times more. Another reviewer reports witnessing staff verbally abuse patients, although the doctors he saw all treated him well. A common complaint is that SalusCare is unorganized, sometimes even cancelling scheduled appointments due to lack of planning.
A RehabReviews.com reader complains that the organization's record department is very incompetent, as seen in the comment section of the site's SalusCare review. Another commenter warns patients to stay away from a particular staff member, whom he says is rude and lacks empathy.Learn more about Mental Health
