Review of Dr. Mahtabifard

- in Marina Del Rey,CA |

I was refered to Dr Mahtabifard once I was diagnosed with lung cancer. He took his time and reviewed my case and scheduled my surgery for the earliest possible time. He was very thorough explaining my case and procedure for my daughter who was very worried. On the day of surgery he was very calm and took his time removing the tumor. After the surgery according to my daughter he saw her twice to assure her all went well. I'm recovering terrifically under his care. Amir Hakim (AMIRCO)

Review of Dr. Fuller

-Yorba Linda, CA |

I wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone. Dr. Fuller did a unnessary unnessary surgery. Because I question him, in the hospital I was treated poorly. My surgery was 7 weeks ago. I haven't felt well. I call his office and get no return phone call. They violated my privacy rights. I would really get a second opinion, before using this DOCTOR 3

Dr. Ali Mahtabifard is everything you want in a doctor, friendly, honest and extremely confident in his field. It has been almost 1 year since my double lung pleurodesis procedure. I am so thankful that Dr. Ali performed both of my surgeries. Thank you so very much for your excellent care and exceptional professional abilities! Sincerely, Trina and Nick Gomez

Review of Dr. Fuller

- in Torrance, CA |

I had a Hiatal hernia, It got so bad I could not eat, except for tiny portions. On May 9th 2013 I had surgery to put the hiatal hernia back in the proper position. On May 12 I was able to eat soft food. I was released on May 14, saw Dr Fuller on the 16th and returned to a normal diet. All along I had no pain at all. It was amazing. Dr Fuller is very pleasant and dedicated person. I would recommend him highly. I have had no problems eating and swallowing Five stars.
