Review of Dr. Kinkel

- in San Diego, CA |

A friend of mine sees him and recommended him so I made my appointment to see him concerning my symptoms, MRI's, and test results for MS. He has his shadow doctor in there taking all the information and once the hour passed with her testing me and all the normal stuff, she got him. He literally spent 15 minutes talking to me and never addressed anything. Too busy trying to make jokes and cutting me off and tried to brush me off back to my PCM. I am not impressed and he didn't even talk to me.

Review of Dr. Kinkel

- in Hemet, CA |

I was apprehensive about meeting Dr. Kinkel due to some negative reviews posted online about him. But after my 1st visit with him, I can say confidently that I did not have a bad experience at all. To the contrary, Dr. Kinkel and the entire staff, including his assistant and medical student in training, treated me with the utmost respect, courteousness and professionalism. Dr. Kinkel took his time listening to me explain my medical issues and he spoke in a very kind manner. I was truly happy!

Review of Dr. Ciacci

- in Kailua Kona, HI |

Working a very physically demanding job for my entire life, my back was a constant source of concern. Eventually my chiropractic solutions became ineffective. Pain severe enough for an E.R. visit sent me to Dr. Ciaccis office. His advice was surgery. After months of trying to avoid the knife, I finally commited. Everything went exactly as was descrbed to me. One year post surgery now and I'm feeling 20 years younger. Thank Dr. Ciacci! You changed my life!!!!!

Review of Dr. Alexander

- in San Diego, CA |

Genuinely kind, caring, and knowledgeable. He is very busy and for good reason; it is difficult to find a doctor invested in your care and willing to jump in alongside you to help find the best plan. Dr. Alexander is a rare find.

Review of Dr. Ben-Haim

- in Carlsbad, CA |

Review for cervical spinal fusion C4 – C7. I give Dr. Ben-Haim a grade of 10+ I can’t think of enough positive accolades to describe the expertise of Dr. Ben-Haim’s surgical skills. I’m 81 years old it has been 2 weeks since my surgery I am walking 1.2 miles a day and increasing the distance by .25 miles per day. I have absolutely no side or after effects. If I ever require another spinal surgery Dr. Ben-Haim will be my first choice!!

Review of Dr. Iragui

- in Oceanside, CA |

I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Dr Iragui to anyone looking for neurologist! His bedside manner is very kind, comforting ... he is extremely intelligent, explained everything to me so I could understand, answered my questions ... with a smile on his face (very personable). He did needed tests, and I had to go into hospital for a few days. 100% satisfied. Unfortunately, we moved away and it would be hard to find a doctor like him.

Review of Dr. Mendler

-San Diego |

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.
