Review for Dr. Liou

I met Dr. Sandoval at HarborUCLA , he took the time to listen to me and didn’t discount my ramblings as nonsense. He didn’t have that “I know better then you” attitude. Ii was sorry to see him leave Harbor and go to Kaiser to work with my previous pulmonary provider.

Review for Dr. Sandoval

Two months ago I had a full hip replacement performed by Dr. Peters . I could not be more happy with the result or how I was treated by Dr. Peters and everybody else at Kaiser. I'm back to hiking again now which means a lot to me.

Review for Dr. Fulbright

Since I have only one sphincter muscle, my colonoscopy was slightly less than routine. However, I was very satisfied with not only the clinical care but with the clerical staff in general. Everyone was friendly and professional.

I saw dr. Zane in 2011 when all is well in 2016 Dr Zane was direct clear and honest what was needed from me he answered all my questions in layman terms. I stay between 155 165 pounds because I change my life. Dr Zane he's a tool you are actually working program

San Diego, CA - Apr 28 2016

Review for Dr. Zane

I would not recommend because he does not listen to your concerns and acts as if he forgets he works in a career to help others. I had to get a very critical physical exam done and he was very careless and sent me on my way without showing interest in whether I was completely coherent or not.

Dr. Peters is a phenomenal doctor who performed a knee replacement for me. My. Down time was minimal (5 1/2 weeks) and the pain was almost non-existant. Excellent surgery

Review for Dr. Peters

Dr. Zane did my gastric sleeve surgery. He is awesome! Answered all my questions and even used visuals to help me understand the process. After surgery I had minimal pain and no complications. I attribute my quick recovery to his expertise. I highly recommend him!
