Russell, is that extortionary person who happens to be a physician. I'm honored to have him as my physician. Today he is seriously ill and had to take a leave of absence for a year I was told. I want to wish him the utmost in medical attention for an extraordinary speedy recovery.

Dr. Sazgar is the best epileptologist. She found where my seizures were coming from. My previous neurologists could not locate them. She cares about her patients and treats us like family. She’s the best.

Unfortunately, I have to leave a bad review about Dr. Preda. It looks like he wasn't in the same room as I and didn't pay attention, didn't listen to what I was explaining. My experience with him was atrocious and disappointing.

Dr. Randall was my surgeon and oncologist when I went through cancer treatment. She treated me with care and made me feel like part of her family. I am so grateful to her!

Mary Sosa Apr 23 2020

Review for Dr. Randall

If I could give 0 stars I would. She is arrogant and condescending. When questioned about a dangerous medication she allowed a resident to prescribe, her response was to say I needed to find another doctor, right at the start of the pandemic! If you want treatment other than drugs don’t see Dayal.
