Dr Mina has been our family dentist for 25 years. She is very professional and has a great knowledge in dentistry overall. She is the only dentist my 26 year old daughter knows and ever been to. She keeps up with technology and you always get honest opinion and answers to your questions.

Full disclosure - I'm a PAMF member, but my mother was taken to this ICU where the team of doctors and nurses provided amazing care and kept me informed every step of the way. Can't say enough for Dr. Lasman. Will consider enrolling in Kaiser when my PAMF insurance expires.

Glad to have him on my treatment team for a 2 cm acoustic neuroma near my brainstem, by Cyberknife. He explains the treatments very well. He has called me twice since the consult, with more complete information. I will have more to say after treatment.
