Dr Bessudo is one of the best doctors I have encountered. He is polite, personable, kind, empathetic, appropriately humorous and most importantly knowledgeable and thorough. He takes time to explain complex concepts in an understandable and clear manner. His office staff are all very friendly as well.

I'm amazed by his bed side manner. My being and sick and in constant pain has been a horrific maze of no treatment no definitive diagnoses no steps beyond sheer sadness and frustration tired of being sick and in pain. Then I met this gifted Doctor. I have white coat anxiety as it is but he is caring articulate and he's trying to get to the core of whats going on so yes I will continue to have restored faith I've found in him.

While he is friendly and affable, he lacks attention to detail. During several visits, it was obvious he had not read my records. I was suggesting follow up care that he had not considered. He overlooked a crucial fact in my surgical report that said the surgeon had leaked bile during surgery (colon cancer), so I was Stage II and am now Stage IV because he did not order chemo. Wait times in Encinitas are often over 30 minutes. It is extremely difficult to get his staff to forward records to other doctors. It got to the point I would order the records and carry them myself to the other doctors.

Dr. Bessudo is great. I would highly recommend him. Excellent bedside manner and very knowledgeable. He spent a lot of time with my wife and I discussing options and was very adept at looking at the statistical data in terms of care.
