Review of Dr. Patel

- |

Condescending, did not take my symptoms seriously, wrote me an Rx for a drug that didn't work, did no follow-up, said he could do nothing more for me. Very bad experience.

Review of Dr. Meunier

-

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.

Review of Dr. Sewell

-

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 of Dr. Gilani

- in San Diego, CA |

Dr Gilani was my surgeon for a functional rhinoplasty, where she fixed my x2 broken nose and opened my nasal passageways to improve breathing. During pre-op appts she was nothing but kind, patient, informative, and generous with her time and expertise. Her surgery team was wonderful and did everything they could to put me at ease on the day of surgery. Post-op she has been exceptional in her care for me. My nose looks great, I can breathe with the best of them, and I am super grateful. THANK YOU

Review of Albert Runzel

-San Diego, CA |

I was diagnosed gestational diabetic and couldn't make the first appointment regarding nutrition due to working. He told me "so you would rather your baby die then miss a day of work?" I was extremely taken aback when he said that. My sugar levels were fine throughout my entire pregnancy. He was extremely crass and has very little bedside manner. Would never recommend him as any kind of doctor to anyone.

Review of Dr. Husseman

- in San Diego, CA |

I had a mysterious pain and swelling in my cheek that my PCP, an urgent care doctor, my dentist, and an endodontist were unable to identify or give me any insight into. I was referred to Dr. Husseman and couldn't be happier about it. I was able to get an appointment last minute and when I was in the appointment, Dr. Husseman was incredibly kind, patient, and attentive. He has excellent bedside manners, and was very thorough in his explanations. I can't recommend him highly enough!

Review of Dr. Bui

-

Dr. Bui and his straw-man hypothetical doctoring & struggles with communication poorly represent UCSD and this facility.

Review of Dr. Lane

-

Dr. Lane cut several of my abdominal viens including my iliac vien during a two stage back surgery. Another vascular surgeon had to come in and fix his mistakes. I ended up having 4 back surgeries in eight days and being unable to walk as a result of his carelessness. I had to and continue to be in PT to help me with walking. My left leg is swollen all the time as a result of his carelessness. I would never recommend this doctor.

Review of Dr. Kulasa

- in Santa Maria CA 93455, CA |

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.
