    DR. TALEISNIK RESPONDS - (Dr. Taleisnik, edit your response)

    I hear daily from patients, employers, insurance adjustors, and other doctors that my practice provides the best Hand Surgery care in Orange County. Since average ratings with few respondents can be skewed by a few disgruntled patients who did not receive the opinion, time off work or disability rating that they were shopping for, I will now ask patients to submit ratings to improve accuracy.

    Three years ago I had a complete face & neck lift. I was left with a huge goiter like ball on my neck. Dr Takesnik acted like nothing was wrong. He performed 3 revisions to get rid of it but left me with a scar across my neck that looks like I had my neck slit. I have one pixie ear and am very dissatisfied with the $9k results. Not worth it and I'd never recommend this doctor. The last revision he was abrupt & wanted to get done and never see me again. My neck looks terrible.

    I left his office in tears!!! I have chronic elbow pain and have been to other drs.I have tests done from previous drs and still they don't know why.I was hoping Dr Taleisnik would be abke to help me. So instead of offering to help me in figuring out what is going on he sent me on my way with some medicine patches and pain management. And i still have no answers. Very disappointed.
