Dr Chatigney has been an amazing physician for my daughter with her devastating bilateral heel injury! She is a super-communicative, hands-on doctor, who treats her patients (and family members) like they are ‘the only one!’ I cannot recommend her more highly!

Dr. Vendegna is great. He's attentive, asks questions, explains test results. His employees that actually administer the tests are also excellent. However his office staff is unbelievably inadequate, inefficient and somewhat rude. There's no follow-thru.

I go into his office monthly for infusions due to an autoimmune disorder. I was so impressed with Dr. Talieh and his staff that I switched and he is now my primary care Dr. I cannot say enough about what a good Dr he is. He listens and really cares. AN EXCELLENT DR!!!!!

Dr was great, staff is awful. No support, no returned phone calls, 25 minutes on hold to talk to reception who then transfers you to someone who won't answer the phone....never got what I needed to get my MRI, they then called and said they can't help....

We are very happy and grateful to find a good Dr in Morro Bay. Dr Kolb's bedside manner's impeccable. His office staff are friendly. My husband had his first visit today, he was blown away! He says he hasn't had a physical exam better than the one by Dr Kolb.

I absolutely loved Dr. Levin. His staff was amazing the ladies at the front desk were friendly and professional. So refreshing, most of the time we go to the doctors, the staff doesn't even look up at you. Dr. Levin was very caring and took the time to explain everything. Thank You, K. Silva

I've been trying to contact Dr. Lai office to schedule my follow up appointment. I have left them several messages and no response. But it does not surprise me because his staff is horrible and has poor etiquette on patient care.

He is a great surgeon! I was a young patient and had to have a massive back surgery. He made solid decisions and did his best to make sure I could walk again. He has great bedside manner and was thoughtful in presenting information.

A VERY skilled surgeon! Clear and direct delivery of information. We traveled 2.5 hours just to have the follow up surgery with Dr. Wogu. He performed a surgery not too many doctors could. We is truly an asset to his profession.

Dr. Lai has been my endocrinologist for over ten years. He is always friendly, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable, not only in his particular field but as a general physician. He was able to solve a health problem that had plagued me for many years. I highly recommend him.

I experienced a full cardiac arrest about 10 years ago. Dr. Doria placed a stent in me which has worked for me until recently. He is an excellent physician with good verbal skills. On a scale of 1-10, I rate him 10+.

Dr. Hilty spends an amazing amount of time with me at my annual exam. Each January I have lab work and then we go over that as well as doing the physical and mental evaluations. He's just incredibly easy to discuss everything with.

Dr. Laird has done two total hip replacements and a knee replacement on me and it all went very well. He also did an ankle fusion on my husband. Both of our surgeries have been very successful. He takes time to explain and gives you time to ask questions. I think he is a very good doctor!
