Patient Comments (2)
Los Angeles, CA |
The office staff is very friendly & accommodating to scheduling appointments. His bedside manner is pretty good except when he is questioned about continued treatment plans. Instead of getting to the root of the problem he continued to inject me with steroids and prp procedures which were very painful. this went on for about a year & when I questioned him about the root cause & to do another MRI he refused. I then went to a renowned back surgeon who took one look at MRI & said I needed surgery
in Santa Monica, CA |
Excellent, knowledgeable, experienced pain physician who helps me with severe back issues.
