    He doesn't feel responsible for patient's health. All he concerns is to add more and more patients to his list!! His office manager is extremely rude. Dr must be okay with it otherwise he wouldn't have hired him! As old saying if you want to see how a manager is you better meet his staff first!!They treat a patient like an experiment!

    This is a amazing office and staff. I was so pleased with Dr Combs. His staff( Mark, Jeff, Shannon and the Medical assts and all learning students are the best I have ever seen. They take care of me and make me feel like I can ask anything.

    The staff is rude and when I called they do not follow up or have him call me. When I asked them to get prior records after a month they still had not done that.

    Dr. Combs and his very excellent staff are the best thing that ever happened to the Temecula valley community. He is a professional and caring physician who goes the extra mile to give you the best care possible. I have never had a more compassionate, intelligent, and honorable physician. He refers you to the best specialists that he knows in the area, gives same day appointments, educates you on your condition, and provides you with the best all around care available.
