I had a trauma-related spinal injury and Dr. Aliabadi performed the surgery - he was reassuring and explained everything very clearly especially given how little time there was between me arriving at the hospital and the surgery itself

I have a long history of sun related skin problems, which means I have been treated by many specialists for decades. This doctor is the best. He is also a nice guy.

Review for Dr. Richnak

I believe Dr Godil could do better and help his patients with faster and more involved care, It seems he just does colonoscopy and endoscopy, Patients are in danger and need faster care from Dr Godil more attention, he let's to much time lapse for patients care, hard to get call backs,

Dr Reynolds was my physician for over 20 years. In addition to his expertise, he was always kind and supportive. I wish him well with his retirement-he truly deserves it!

One of the best Doctors I have ever had. I trust him totally with my orthopedic needs. He operated on me 4 times all for different injuries and if it wasn't for him, I'd be in a wheelchair. He knows his stuff and was/is a training doctor for new surgeons. 100% thumbs UP !!

It was about what I expected. I went in and they wacked off the bad stuff and froze the not so bad stuff. I think they enjoyed it. :-) I do feel they know what they're doing and I was handled very professionally. I would recommend them to anyone has questions about skin growths or marks.
