Review for Dr. Penumetsa

No...arrogant, pompous attitude. He recently brushed off my sons ER visit by not recommending admittance Only at ER for four hours and sent home. Within twelve hours back at ER under a different doctors care that admitted my son for five days to get his pain connected to his cancer in control.

Review for Dr. Troost

Absolute nightmare of an experience. Spent months trying to diagnose my problems due to him misreading my first test's results. Due to his mistake I lost my job, suffered extreme emotional distress, and suffered through needless painful tests.

Review for Dr. Mayron

Dr Starrett checked my heart out in preparation for a lazer surgery of a left kidney stone last month. It was a modestly tough judgement call. Due his expertise and very kind demeanor, all went well. Thank you Doctor... Dan

I have been seeing Dr Rashidian for 30 years. He is such a compassionate and caring man. He actually takes time to listen to my problems and concerns.
