Patient Comments (1)
in Redondo Beach, CA |
SUMMARY I have read all the Yelp reviews. I must admit I don’t give Yelp reviews much weight in terms of picking a surgeon. Doctors can be nice and great individuals but often this has nothing to do with PATIENT OUTCOME. The outcome we are looking for is being CANCER FREE (dying some other way). So it is necessary to tell you my story so you can make this important assessment for yourself. My story below illustrates that you must have a competent and skilled doctor doing your procedure.
