Review for Dr. Behl

He is very good given care with heart and he is knowledgeable. He was my primary for only two months but he cured my illness that I had been struggling for twenty years. Too bad he left Standford Health Care clinic shortly after he saved my life. Thanks very much Dr. Sheppard!

Review for Dr. Sheppard

Dr. Kang is an excellent doctor. He listens and responds to my concerns, and he gives me options for the best way to control my arrhythmia. He's has been my cardiologist for three years and I feel better now than I have since my a-fib started ten years ago.

Dr. Mann is a highly skilled surgeon and fantastic doctor. I’d recommend him to anyone. I was referred to him by another physician I deeply trust and was not disappointed. He corrected a toe issue (after operating) that no other doctor I’d seen had been able to fix.

I finally discovered what was wrong with my foot! But, it wasn't from Dr. Drbal. He didn't even ask to do X-rays. I had a rare disorder on my feet. So unless you're pain is common, I don't reccomend him at all!!! Very Uninformative!

Review for Dr. Greene

Made an appointment for a consultation, turns out that his office is in a hospital and I got billed for hospital charges. No ethics in the medical community. Find a different Dr.

Dr. Pienkny has been kind and caring during the 15 or so years I've been going to him for treatment and monitoring a benign prostate condition. If there's a fault, it would be he's either overly cautious (could be good) or led by procedures that have financial rewards (maybe a medical flaw).
