San Juan Capistrano, CA |
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!
