After surgery my nose is better but now I’m having trouble breathing on the other side. I feel like I should get free correction surgery. She IS nice though!

Review for Dr. Gilani

Dr. Leung was very thorough and patient with me during my visit. He took to listen to me and explain very clearly to me about my pain conditions. His staff was very helpful and friendly.

Review for Dr. Bui

Excellent! Dr. Husseman was incredibly kind and very respectful. I would gladly recommend him to anyone who needs to be seen by an ENT specialist. His office staff was friendly and competent and the visit over all was seamless and pleasant.

Dr Greenberg dissolved my anxiety with his calm knowledgeable presence. He was above and beyond... I had no down time because he knew what he was doing. I’m a red head

This is the best human / doctor I've ever found; compassionate, inquisitive and a real friend. If your kidneys need help, GO HERE...not there.

Review for Dr. Deconde

I went into get the results of an ultrasound for a lump in my chest. He checked the lump, but when I asked if I could have a breast exam he told me no. I would have to make another appointment for that. Money. Doesn’t care about people. Never going back again.

Review for Enrique Garcia

Terrible! I saw Dr. Meunier for a fractured wrist. First he did not wash his hands nor did he acknowledge my husband who was sitting next to me. He knew nothing about my history and seemed bored. He came off as arrogant and smug. A real let down.

May 19 2019

Review for Dr. Meunier

Horrible....he ignored my husband's symptoms and consequently my husband died a long agnizing death. Dr. Sewell & his intern ignored my pleas for help until it was way too late. Stay away from there!

Review for Dr. Sewell

Dr.Deconde gave me my quality of life back.After 7 years of suffering greatly he did surgery and changed my life forever!He truly is a remarkable doctor and surgeon.I would highly recommend him to anyone.He is also very kind hearted and personable and cares very much about his patients.

Wrong advice to diabetics!!! It is too much fat in the diet. Cure type 2 with plant-based healthy nutrition. Learn from Dr, John McDougall, Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. Michael Greger, etc.

This doctor is very quick to order expensive tests and then does not follow through with results. Poor to no communication from him, his staff or office not even through electronic charting. Very disappointed in the medical care I received from this doctor.

I was looking for a female Gastroenterologist and found Dr Kalmaz. Everyone I encountered was freindly and helpful from the Valet guys to the Lab people on my way out. This was my first visit and I would highly recommend Dr Kalmaz.

Review for Dr. Gilani

Worst doctor ever. Just left his clinic today and he is very arrogant with autism families. He has no patience with the parents to explain the child condition and he is rude. He should be looking for a new job if he doesn't love what he does.

Review for Dr. Sweiss

I'm sure she is a very intelligent and technically skilled physician. However, she should have picked a different career. She cannot be happy. At times I think she exudes significant level of disdain for her colleagues and patients.

I have known Dr Barnard for many years, and when I needed a cardiologist, I sought her out. She is thorough, caring, and most of all, she listens to you, the patient. I feel very fortunate to have her as my doctor.

Very judgmental. Wanted to put me on a very restrictive diet what I was within the recommended weight gain. Did not listen to my concerns. I do not trust that he wants what is best for me and my baby and only what is taught in medical school.
