Review for Dr. Palana

He took care of me at a hospital in LA. He is very patient and reassured me that I will be OK. I had a lung infection and I was so worried that I had the coronavirus. He is a professional doctor and attentive.

Review for Dr. Johnson

Came in to see Dr. Grimes with an ingrown toenail which was very painful. After numbing my toe and correcting the issue, I never felt any more pain even after the numbing medication wore off. He did a fabulous job and his office staff is terrific as well.

Review for Dr. Grimes

Very prompt and professional! Very knowledgeable of my situation and condition. Took time to explain my situation with me and my family and constantly give us updates. I would highly recommend Dr. Johnson

This doctor is the best. Last year in March 2019 I had my sleeve done with him and lost 90lb, he did a great job. 2 weeks ago I went back for a brachioplasty and I am so pleased with my result and it was a real easy recovery, he is just the best, I would go any time back to him

Review for Dr. Paquette

I like this doctor - he seems genuinely concerned with my "treatment", but he has a "one size fits all" belief, which confuses me. He holds a degree in psychology but doesn't seem to use it when he has his psychiatrist hat on. However, the office staff is great.

DR. M IS GOD THAT WALKS AMONGST MEN. Lol but seriously, he did an amazing job on my non surgical nose job and his wonderful signature M pout. I had never done any injectables before but he was able to make me comfortable enough to try it and I’m so glad I did.

PATIENTS BEWARE: Dr. Landis was the rudest, impatient & the most uncaring awful doctor that I have ever encountered. It was shocking to me that of all people a doctor would act this way. What a shame.

Mar 17 2019

Review for Dr. Landis

Dr Palana is very attentive and he actually listens! He does have a dry sense of humor. Won’t go to anyone else. Dr Palana, please continue to smile and make a difference to those who hates going to see a doctor.

Review for Dr. Palana

I am so happy that i was referred to this office. Not only the location and the staff are great but his skills are beyond compare. I was injected by a highly regarded plastic surgeon. Couldnt be happier with the results Thank you

Ajp in Helena, MT - Feb 05 2019

Review for Dr. Mashhadian

Appears scattered. His office hygiene is horrific. I got an infection after my first visit and he continued to deny it. Gave him several tries - last one I walked out because he put gloves to check me and then decided to move some equipment and clean a top area without changing gloves.

HORRIBLE DOCTOR. does not give you the time of day and is extremely negative. Office is so unwelcoming such a bad experience. Honestly so disgusted by the whole situation I just encountered.

Los angeles - Nov 29 2018

Review for Dr. Pullen

Completely unconcerned about patients wellbeing. Doesnt know what he's talking about. Only concerned with shoving people thru the system so he can go admire himself in a mirror as often as possible.

Review for Dr. Johnson

He took care of me for the past 2 years. He is by far the most humble, personable, and accommodating physician I have ever met. I am sad that he closed his West Covina practice but I told him that I will follow him even if it is a long drive for me!!

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr Paquette today to go over my CAT scan and MRI what a lovely human being.His reputation speaks for itself he's an Amazing surgeon! I know I'm in good hands. I have had and met with several neurosurgeons and by far he is the best choice for me.

Competent and caring physician. Goes above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that patients receive the best possible care. Dr. Glenn brings a wealth of experience from his work here and abroad, including during the war in Somalia. I highly recommend Dr. Glenn.

I will not recommend anyone to this doctor. Very unprofessional and lacks communication. Gets very hostile when being questioned. He is very rude and I’m so sorry to anyone who has to be seen by him. Please save yourself a trip and see another doctor.

If you want a non surgical blepharoplasty or any injectable fillers done with careful attention to your bone structure and a natural outcome I highly recommend Dr. David Mashhadian at Rodeo Surgical Arts.

Review for Dr. Mashhadian

This is a continuation of my previous review. It is now past 9:00 P.M. and the patient is still in Urgent Care, even though I was told at 5:45 P.M. that she would be transported immediately. In addition, the hospital lost her dentures and her eyeglasses.

Review for Dr. Lundy

A horrible Doctor. He is incredibly disorganized, unresponsive. I believe he is taking advantage of his contract with San Gabriel Valley Hospital. He is so bad, I wonder where or if he received an actual degree. HORRIBLE.

Gilbert in Hacienda Hts - Feb 26 2018

Review for Dr. Bijanpour

He doesn't rush. He diagnoses and fixes only the stuff you need fixed. He honestly tells you if a procedure has limited effectiveness. When I needed surgery, he didn't push me and then, when I asked for a local anesthetic, he accommodated me.
