Huntington Beach, CA |
I left the Doheny Practice in Fountain Valley because of the last two specialists I saw., he was one. His expertise may be great, he may be a great technician, I don't know, but a physician he is not. I've spent my life in healthcare, and I've never felt less like a person than when I was with him, and Dr. Heilweil. Someone needs to get a message through....we are people, individuals, not computer screens, charts, and check books.

Dr. Francis has poor communication skills. I will not reschedule with him.
