Patient Comments (2)
in Canyon Country, CA |
Dr. Hour is an amazing, kind, considerate and caring Doctor. He literally saved my life and I can never repay him for that. However, the office staff is not very competent. It is very difficult to get somebody on the phone and when you are finally able to, they rarely can give you an answer. Of all the messages I've left over the past six months, perhaps only two of them were ever returned. I just have to keep calling. Very frustrating and not in line with such a great and professional doctor.
Valencia, CA |
Dr. Hour listens and considers your unique history. He is patient and spoke to me at the appropriate level of understanding, unlike many doctors who talk down to you. He was very intelligent and is working with me to help me get my very resistant blood pressure under control.
