Luis E. Gomez APRN, at Stellar Performance Medical was terrific! He was extremely knowledgeable, sensitive and informative… I immediately felt at ease – and felt confident in my receiving expert medical care. I highly recommend Luis to anyone looking for a specialist. I walked away, very impressed with the overall experience.

Fantastic! I hit a roadblock in my weight loss, even with consistent diet and exercise. I had a nutritionist, and was doing CrossFit consistently. I was going all the right things, and not losing weight like I should. I was so frustrated. I started seeing Luis at Stellar Medical and I have been consistently losing weight since. I have referred multiple friends to him who have also had good experiences. Will continue to refer people! Highly recommend!

My husband I go to Luis Gomez at Stellar Performance Medical for all of our Covid Testing. We take several cruises each year and we need a test 48 hours prior to boarding. Rather than waiting in a crowded waiting room full of people, we make an appointment with Luis. We are in and out in 20 minutes. He is professional and pleasant and the most accommodating medical professional I have ever met. He was referred to me by a friend and I am so grateful for the referral. I would recommend Luis for any and all of your medical needs. He has a can do attitude and you can count on him when you are in need.
