Rancho Santa Margarita, CA |
Mission Sleep Center is a medical provider scam artist organization. If you go, all they will do is convince you that you need "care" and then put you on a CPAP prescription holding you hostage to pay for a machine and regular appointments. I started CPAP and then lost 90 lbs and all my medical issues went away. But I had to fight Tammelins people to pay them an absurd fee for a retest to get a prescription to get off CPAP! Lots more complaints that don't fit in this text box. Run away!
Brea, CA |
My CPAP machine broke. I called his office in late June and again the next week. I was told a prescription would be called in to Apria. I called Apria and they never received the prescription. I called his office again, left another message and never received a call back. His office staff is terrible.

Sleep study done well over 6 weeks ago and have yet to be contacted regarding results!! Don't understand when I had been advised that my results would be available within 1 week!
Mission Viejo, CA |
Doctor is knowledgeable, but unfortunately unavailable physically or mentally. One waits in the outer office for 45 minutes and then in the inner office for another hour. Doctor drops in long enough to say he's needed at the hospital or elsewhere and he's gone!
