Review of Dr. Lerman

- in san diego |

Does not listen to his patients, he simply wants lab rats for his new procedures and research. Be VERY wary.

Review of Dr. Coffey

- |

If you have a complicated case, insurance that doesn’t make them money or are ever on top of your health more than your doc then this is not the hospital for you. I am only 24 years old and switched to UCSD from Rady Children’s over 3 years ago. I have been so let down and feel defeated. I was misdiagnosed for many months as a child and nearly died because of a doctors inablity to believe they are wrong. Once switched doctors I was diagnosed within days. I have run into this problem again now

Review of Dr. McHale

- in San Diego, CA |

This doctor was unprofessional and uncaring. He actually made fun of me for being upset about having Uterine cancer. When he converted from minimally invasive to full stomach surgery he didn't bother to explain to me. He also failed to tell me that I had a 25% chance of having Stage3 cancer. I have many more stories. His staff never returns calls, loses paperwork and blames others. I have never complained about a doctor and loved my new doctors. I hate for anyone to experience what I did

Review of Dr. Plaxe

-

I came at UCSD from excellent GW Hospital because of Dr. Steven Charles Plaxe reputation. Excellent doctor! He serves his patients with his high quality knowledge and experience! I won’t be the person who I am know fighting cancer with knowledge and high spirit. I am not afraid because I trust Dr. Plaxe. Thank you Dr. Plaxe and all his team for endless hours spent to save human lives.

Review of Dr. Onaitis

- in San Diego, CA |

I would highly recommend Dr. Onaitis. He removed a lobe of my right lung that had a malignant growth with the VATS procedure. I was able to leave the hospital after two days and continue recovering in the comfort of my home.

Review of Dr. Clary

- in Oceanside, California |

Dr. Clary & his team are the best! He performed the “whipple procedure” on May 25th of last year; a very intricate surgery which lasted almost nine hours!He has performed this surgery about 300 times! He is very thorough in his explanation of the surgery; I used to call him “professor”. He was honest & up front but he does not jump to conclusions without knowing all the information he can gather. I was very blessed to have him as my surgeon, I don’t believe you can find a better one!
