Review of Dr. Horowitz

- |

Further to Horowitz twisting my back so badly in Dec 2016 with a non-standard manipulation he said was chiropractic, I discovered later he's an Osteopath. He did this to an 82 year old patient - without X-rays, minimal exam lasting 5-10 minutes max, did not refer to Kaiser records and used a technique not recognised by the UC Irvine School of Chiropractic nor his own Osteopath College. I complained to his professional society of Osteopaths, and he lied to them claiming he didn't use the manipulation I described. I had to have an emergency laminectomy about 3 weeks after he performed an unsafe and non-approved manipulation on me. I still suffer 2 1/2 years later, unable to walk more than 2-300 yards without resting, have constant low-level pain, numbness and stabbing pains in my right thigh. Prior to his rushed and ill-considered "treatment' I had never had a back pain in my entire life. so he is not only professionally careless, but also a liar.

Review of Dr. McDermott

-Otay Mesa, CA |

He was horrible. He dismissed my aunts foot problem. Gave her a little injunction that will “help for a while”. When we asked what the next step is if the injection doesn’t work and he stated she would “just have to live with it.” How do you say that to someone who says they can barely walk on it. She will never go back to see him.

Review of Dr. Yee

- in Chula Vista |

Dr. Yee rid me of acute low back pain radiating down my leg and chronic neck pain. He questioned me about my symptoms and history, then suggested Pain Management as the route I may want to take. I said definitely, as I have considered surgery for the chronic pain but don't want that. He prescribed medication that has rid me of almost all pain i was experiencing. He authorized acupuncture, but I haven't had to resort to that yet. I highly recommend him as he has an excellent "bedside manner" and is most thorough.

Review of Dr. Horowitz

- in CA |

As a patient of Dr. Steven Horowitz for many years, I always found him to be a very caring doctor who took the time to listen to my concerns and address them. After seeking medical services from other doctors who seemed to want to give me a "quick fix" of medication without finding the underlying problems, I appreciated how thorough Dr. Horowitz was with each visit. He always showed genuine concern for his patients and never rushed through the appointment! I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Review of Dr. Christakos

-

I’ve seen over 50 doctors in my life and never have I experienced a doctor that actually wants to help people and truly improve the lifestyle of his patients primarily. Usually it feels like they want you in and out so they can meet their quota. Dr. Christakos is beyond amazing, knowledgeable, kind, open minded, and very capable of clear communication. He’s changed my entire life.

Review of Dr. Escobar

-

Dr. Escobar has been my primary doctor for approximately 2 years. Prior to her, my previous doctor never had any type of follow-up on tests, results or anything to express concerns when my blood pressure continued to elevate. Dr. Escobar on the other hand, continuously monitors my tests, encouraged me to enroll in the diabetes educational class even though I'm only pre-diabetes and most importantly, I feel comfortable speaking with her regarding personal health-related issues.

Review of Dr. Helmers

- in San Diego, CA |

I was skeptical after reading some of the reviews and wondered why Kaiser sent me to this man. I have been with Kaiser for over 25 years and kept the same Primary Care Doctor for 23 of those years. I kept my appointment and was pleasantly surprised. This doctor was a gentle giant. He sat down with my husband and I and explained everything I wanted to know about the soft tumor in my thigh. He gave us the information explained the options, and told us what he could and couldn't do. We loved him.
