My interactions with Dr. Javier have always been positive, I find it very hard to believe that she'd do anything that would be harmful. She was the doctor for my almost two year old daughter from birth. Dr. Javier was the best family doctor I've every seen, even making house calls when transportation was difficult, not having anything to do with prescriptions. We hope that everything works out positively for Janette, she is a genuinely caring person.

Dr. Javier has been my family doctor for 2 1/2 years. During that time I had routine annual examinations and went to her for an overactive bladder problem. She educated me that it was from too much caffeine. She did not prescribe any narcotics to me for any of the issues I came to her for. She always used holistic healing practices in treating my ailments, so I can say, first hand, that not every patient was seeking pharmaceuticals from Dr. Javier and her intuition as to the source of a physical problem was always uncannily accurate. I also sought out assistance for restless leg syndrome and we both determined that it was neurological and that a calcium, magnesium supplement would alleviate the jumping I would experience when trying to lay down to sleep.

This is so true, as a former employee of that office almost everyone that walked out of that office was walking out with a narcotic. I am shocked this did not come out sooner

Thank you! I dont think anyone has said that she did not care for her patients, or that she was stupid. On the contrary she is a good person that had things get out of hand. And YES I am a former employee who apparently worked for free!

Dr Javier was my family doctor since 2002 and had always tried to treat with other meds outside of narcotics. I remember her treating me to remove both my toenails and gave me Ibuprofen. Since she was a family/pain management doctor, was she not supposed to treat for pain? I don't get it. She is a good woman who would talk all possible outlets with the patient. She is a very thorough doctor and what ever was not on paper or her small lap top, she would remember in her head at the follow up appointment. When the other doctor that shared offices with her moved to a central location that is what really put her in a bind. That can't be the sole reason of the demise. The practice got very busy and for being such a new doctor I think she may not have had the most perfect consolation. Do they honestly show you how to run a business as well as practice medicine in med school. That would be a double major. I hope that the outcome is positive so she can get back to treating the patients with chronic or auto immune diseases, as well as, the poor babies who now have no PCP. Good Luck and don't believe all the negative people.
