Review of Dr. Tash


Dr. Tash treated my child with compassion and kindness. Our daughter had a difficult procedure and Dr. Tash made sure to put my daughter at ease prior to the surgery as well as my entire family. He came out after the surgery letting us know immediately how the surgery went. He answered all of our questions. Dr. Tash’s bedside manner is excellent, not only to the patient, but also to the entire family. The nurses told us that Dr. Tash would be the doctor they would choose to work on work in the.

Review of Dr. Hakimian


Last week I was in Kaiser Hospital. Dr Hakemian was one of the physicians who saw me. He was thorough, careful and took a great amount of time to work with me and advise me. I truly appreciate his approach. C. Frye

Review of Dr. Steinberger


I have had mixed feelings about Kaiser in the past but Dr. S literally changed my whole outlook. He was thorough, caring, patient and had an outstanding bedside manner. Best of all, he made me better. I’m extremely lucky to have him assigned to me when I was admitted. Thanks again!

Review of Dr. Fogarty

- in Los Angeles, CA |

Chronic illness for over 12 years you get more with sugar than you do sour... I am always the utmost polite and respectful of all nurse staff and doctors. This doctor has zero bedside manner, is accusatory, argumentative, and judgemental. I had to actually compose myself overnight and plan how to get out of the hospital away from this woman back to the comfort of my own home out of the hospital. I made sure to let her know her bedside manner is not appropriate and we are the patients. Fire her

Review of Dr. Fogarty

-Cathedral City, CA |

Mean. Spiteful. Vindictive. This doctor is burnt out, and by her own admission, overwhelmed by her workload and "the fires that she had to put out." Her personal bias gets in the way of providing effective medical treatment. If you have the misfortune to be randomly assigned to Dr. Fogarty, I strongly recommend you ask for another physician. Kaiser Sunset has some excellent medical providers- Dr. Fogarty is not one of them.

Review of Dr. Steinberger

- in Los Angeles , CA |

Dr.S is a great hospitalist doc. He took outstanding care of me and did a very thorough workup. He made me better within days and I actually left the hospital feeling great. He even called me the next week at home to check on me! Consider yourself lucky if he sees you in the hospital.

Review of Dr. Steinberger

- in Hollywood , CA |

Dr.S took incredibly good care of me in the hospital. I had a very serious condition a year ago that required a lot of his time and effort, but he went above and beyond every day to help me through everything. It made such an impression I went back the following year to say thank you again. Highly recommend!

Review of Dr. Tash

- in San Diego , CA |

Dr. Tash, my family is so very grateful for the care and genuine love you provided my son Aaron M. You are an amazing talent and cared for him pre and post surgery. You took time out of your schedule to check up on my sons progress and we are forever grateful. I wish Kaiser could form a pain management team because being able to keep my son comfortable and with limited pain could not have been done without your help in keeping him on his epideral post surgery. Thank you may the lord bless you.
