Review of Dr. Hosseini


Dr Housseini did my surgery for breast cancer in April 2019. She is very kind, professional, and compassionate. She calmed me down when I had a melt down. My frankenboob is still healing so too soon to tell the aesthetics of my lumpectomy. It got infected like 4 weeks post-op, but apparently that is common. I have to get the fluids drained out to help the healing so that's where I am at now.

Review of Dr. Neath

- in La Jolla, CA |

I met Dr. Neath and his team at the UCSD urgent care on Villa La Jolla Drive this past Sunday night. I felt silly bringing in my daughter but her fever wasn't abating and I was worried. It took Dr. Neath about 30 seconds to diagnose my daughter as having scarlet fever [confirmed later with a strep test] and when I was nervous to give her penicillin because she had never had it , he offered to administer the dose in office and observe. I could not recommend Dr. Neath and his team more highly.

Review of Dr. O'Connell

-San Diego, CA |

We had an excellent experience with Dr. O'Connell. He was warm, caring, and professional. He was not in a rush and took time with us although the Urgent Care was busy and filled with patients. He expedited the imaging study needed and explained my son's condition clearly to us. We are very grateful for his care as well and the staff at Scripps Urgent Care.

Review of Dr. Bowers


This man has no empathy and clearly has no knowledge of chronic illnesses. Went In does some pain relief from an extreme menstrual cycle (i have pcos, endometriosis, adenomyosis, ehlers danlos syndrome, and more) and he had the audacity to treat me like a drug seeker, give me toradol, and tell me that he can’t give me anything else because my blood work was normal. Despite the toradol not working. He even told me to try a bland diet. He then discharged me emotionally torn apart and in pain

Review of Dr. O'Connell

- in Arlington |

Apparently Dr. O', Connor and his pals stated there was nothing wrong. I was walking in home after being their UCSD ER for over 10 hours and them not believing and stating a EJ of 35 % and I'm only 42, and expressed extreme pain in my arm. I passed Ambulance picked me up , the hospital I was taken for a DVT in my upper arm and there is an ugly one. BP was 77/53. They are keeping because it appears I am in high probability of going into cardic failure. sad every patient is different

Review of Dr. Neath

-San Diego, CA |

Does not care about people. Refused to help me with my chronic pain due to many automobile and motorcycle accidents and on the job accidents. I've been in pain for over 20 years and he did not care! I cannot take otc meds due to being on a blood thinner (which is very dangerous to mix with otc meds), and he refused to give me the meds that have been proven to help me. I now can hardly even get out of bed and he just doesn't care!
