Review of Dr. Reyna

- in Los Angeles, CA |

My daughter was treated by Dr. Reyna 3 years ago. She was undergoing her first surgery (Supprelin implant). I was so scared and my then 8 year old daughter was scared too. At our consultation appointment with Dr. Reyna, he was calm, kind, and genuine. He showed my daughter what the implant would look like and was very reassuring. The surgery was a success and the recovery was super quick. Our insurance changed our doctor for her 2nd surgery, but we came back for the 3rd surgery to Dr. Reyna!

Review of Dr. Kabeer

Dr. Kabeer was amazing! Great with kids, which made my son feel more comfortable with him and about having surgery. Very patient in answering all my questions. My sons surgery and post-op were better than expected. Would definitely recommend Dr. Kabeer!

Review of Dr. Kabeer

- in Laguna hills, CA |

We highly recommend Dr. Kabeer. He is truly a skilled and compassionate doctor. He performed a very complicated surgery (pectus extravatum) masterfully and minimized our son’s pain. He stays abreast of the latest techniques and suggested a procedure that would reduce his pain on one side of his chest. As a result our son was released from the hospital after two days and is recovering quickly. Dr. Kabeer also spent quality time with us parents! Thank you Dr. Kabeer and your wonderful staff

Review of Dr. Kabeer

- in Ladera Ranch |

Dr. Kabeer is the most amazing doctor. He saved my son’s life. My son was born with perforated intestines and was extremely lucky that dr. Kabeer was on call that night. Dr. Kabeer performed a total of 3 surgeries on my son who is now a completely healthy 8 year old boy. My family will be forever thankful to dr. Kabeer and will never forget all he has done for our son and my son will never forget Dr. Kabeer’s magic tricks he performs for his patients to cheer them up during regular office visit.

Dr. Kabeer eased all of our concerns and answered our question and never made us feel like any question was unnecessary. His staff are great and make the entire process as easy as possible. All we had to do was take care of our girl. Thanks Dr. Kabeer!

Review of Dr. Kabeer

- in CA |

We saw Dr. Kabeer for our 9 month old son who has a caved in chest. The office was child friendly and the staff was kind. Dr. Kabeer is great with kids (our children were comfortable with him) and he even did a magic trick for our older child! Very special! I am most thankful for Dr. Kabeer’s advice. He let us know to keep an eye on our son but that surgery and tests aren’t needed at this time. I appreciate his expertise and that he prioritized my sons best interests. Thank you!

Review of Dr. Kabeer

- in Lake Forest, Ca. |

Dr. Kabeer took me on as a patient even though I am much older than the normal patient he sees and he did not do my initial bar insertion procedure. I remember chatting to him on the day of my procedure and how much time he spent talking with me and my girlfriend. It was clear that Dr. Kabeer didn't view me as just patient # so and so but rather wanted to know me as well as he could in the short time available. The procedure went flawlessly and I am thrilled with his work.
