Review of Dr. Starr

- in Ventura, CA |

Doesn't actually see his patients. My 5-year-old daughter split her forehead open and got 14 stitches in the ER. I wanted to follow up with a specialist to make sure (1) she would have minimal scarring and (2) she had sustained no other damage that the ER doctor missed. At our appointment with Dr. Starr, we saw only his nurse. She was nice enough, but she missed what may be nerve damage. My daughter can't fully lift her affected brow. Presumably, the doctor would have caught this even though the nurse did not. So, now it's off to find a plastic surgeon who actually bothers to see his/her patients!

Review of Dr. Starr

-Ventura |

Waited for half hour in waiting room, then over an hour int he exam room. He apologized. I would've rather rescheduled. My time is equally valuable. He spoke in a condescending manner, and he didn't know about my carpal tunnel syndrome so refereed me to a hand specialist. I thought he was a hand specialist. Complete waste of time.

Review of Dr. Neufeld


I brought my daughter to see her in August regarding a growth issue. She told us to get an xray which we did. I never heard back from her. I called a few months later and she never returned my call. I finally was able to get in touch with her in Feb, 6 months after we initially went to her. Meanwhile I spent $400 out of pocket for her visit and the xray. Ive never had such bad treatment from a Dr. She gets 0 stars from me. I've never written a review of a Dr before, good or bad, but I'm pissed!

Review of Dr. Landon

- in Los Angeles, CA |

Dr. Christopher Landon is probably the finest doctor ever to see my daughter. He cares about the entire patient. He is thorough and careful and smart and has a huge heart. I was lucky to find him. His help was instrumental in prolonging my daughters life. Through his behavior and thoughtfulness he inspired Mathilda to take care of herself. He is all a great doctor should be. His care does not stop at the clinic. Everyday through his foundation he is commited to helping children. An amazing man.

Review of Dr. Neufeld

-Beverly Hills, CA |

Incredibly rude and discourteous Doctor. Is difficult to get ahold of, charges extra for many necessary parts of a endocronolgist appointment, and constantly treats you like you're a nuisance, whether it be in person or on the phone. EVERY time you go in for an appointment, she seems to be unable to remember ANYTHING about your health plan. Her secretary is also one of the most disrespectful and dim-witted I've ever encountered. Worst Endocrinologist in Los Angeles.

Review of Dr. Coates

- in Ventura, CA |

My son was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia 21 years ago. Dr Coates has been his hematologist for the last 19 of those years. He is an outstanding Doctor and is the reason my son has not had relapsed in over 14 years. My son is healthy, is able to live a normal life, is a paramedic and has a very rigorous job, works out at the gym every day off and is very athletic. My son is enjoying life and is doing very well medically because of the decisions and experience Dr. Coates has in hematology.

Review of Dr. Ament

- in San Luis Obispo, CA |

I took my son to see Dr. Ament to try to determine if he has celiacs. After testing my son for other things we got conflicting information from Dr. Ament. One visit he told us just to not worry about anything, then the next visit he strongly recommended an endoscopy and gave me incorrect test results? I'm terrified that he's giving incorrect care to other children.

Review of Dr. Neufeld

- in Valencia, CA |

If you're looking for a Doctor who will criticize you for gaining one pound and tell you that, because of that 1 pound, you're on the fast track to obesity, then this doctor is for you. She will refuse to accept the possibility that the one pound is water weight.
