Review of Dr. Evans

- |

I was diagnosed with breast cancer just before Christmas last year. I went through the different tests necessary and ended up having surgery Feb 12 with Dr Nora Evans. It was only a lumpectomy but I was still nervous because my sister died with breast cancer years ago so when they woke me up and she was smiling when she visited me before release, I knew it was good news. Thank you so much Dr Evans. My time with recovery was so easy and I'm sold with her no matter what comes after this. She's great.

Review of Dr. Wong

- |

I had a horrible experience with Dr Wong, wasting eight (8) months, undiagnosed, with my condition & pain worsening. All Saddleback Memorial physicians I have met during stays in the hospital are brilliant! I also have several outstanding, brillant, dedicated, caring, physicians as my regular doctor's, within this Memorial group! Through lack of Wongs' care, diagnosis & lack of follow-up, one of my conditions, Stage 1 Barretts'Esophagus had developed. Wong told my husband my hiatal was small. Thankfully, the surgeon at HOAG told him, my hiatal was larger, that I was systematic, requiring surgeries. Wong had a terrible bedside manner, canceled one appointment, which I didn't know until I arrived for my appointment. I begged his assistants to please ask him to see me as I was in so much pain. At our last appointment he told hubby and I, he didn't know if he could help me, yet, never diagnosed me. I am thankful another skilled surgeon saved my life on what Wong missed!

I’ve had two breast cancer surgeries by Dr Ashley. His bedside manner is wonderful. He is very kind & compassionate. Am possibly in need of another surgery & wouldn’t want anyone else performing the surgery!!

Review of Dr. Evans

- |

This place is ALWAYS ALWAYS over book. Front desk is in constant chaos trying to manage so many clients at once. I do not recommend this place. Doctors are always spending little time w us because they are trying so hard to get numbers. I don’t feel welcome. The front desk and the manager are well trained to give people excuses.

Review of Dr. Ashley


The ER physician told us Dr. Ashley was the best and from all I can see he is. My father had a burst colon from and infection we are told and he was dying. Dr. Ashley compassionately explaimed the situation and have us choices. Naturally we chose to go ahead. Dr. Ashley skill saved our father. He was there everyday and gave us hope. It still looks like a long road for us be we are so grateful for this mans skill and care. Frieda Jackson

Review of Dr. Wallace

- in San Clemente, CA |

Can't say enough good things about Dr. Wallace. Had hernia surgery and he took the time to explain what he was going to do and the options he had once I was in surgery depending on what he found. I am a very difficult case due to prior surgeries and he was happy to help. He followed up in the hospital and in the office. His caring, compassion and skills are second to none. He comes highly recommend from several my doctors and I can see why. Anyone that needs general surgery needs Dr. Wallace

Review of Dr. Wallace

- in Mission Viejo |

Dr. Wallace is an outstanding surgeon who provided me excellent healthcare. I feel very fortunate that I was referred to him. He provided me easy to understand background on my condition, treatment options and welcomed me to be a part of the treatment decision. Ultimately my condition required surgery. He performed the surgery far more difficult than expected. Due to his skill I was able to make a full recovery in a time frame that was far better than expected. I highly recommend Dr. Wallace.

Review of Dr. Duensing

- in San Clemente, CA |

Painful, cramping legs and up walking the hallways at night are now a thing of the past. Dr. Duensing was able to correct my vascular issues and provide relief for my chronic problems. I am so grateful and have recommended him to friends.

Review of Dr. Wallace

- in Laguna Beach, CA |

Dr. Wallace performed a stapled hemorrhoidectomy for me two months ago with excellent results. Dr. Wallace was exceptionally thorough in explaining my options, the details of the surgery, the potential complications and what to expect in recovery. He and his support staff (office and technical) were always friendly, available, and focussed on making the experience as pleasant as possible.
