Patient Comments (3)
Lancaster, CA |
Very unresponsive to post operative pain. Did not control pain while in the hospital and discharged patient only 5 hours after an acute appendectomy. Was not willing to increase pain medicine despite the nurse’s request. Gave only 3 days of discharge medicine and did not respond when a refill of pain medicine was requested. Have left over medicine from prior surgeries, so clearly not a narcotic abuser. Terrible looking wound closure from primary laparoscopic incision. Never use him!!!
Palmdale, CA |
Very condescending. Noticeably irate if questioned. Not concerned whatsoever with patients work stressors.

An excellent Doctor/Surgeon.
