I amextremely unhappy With this surgeon . His handyman not a doctor. His knowledge is very limited and whatever he doesn't know he lies . Stay away from this idiot , he only knows how to do hernia surgery, and his not even great at it either .

Great Experience with Dr. Consenza, has performed 2 surgeries on Me ! Very Happy with him !! Edwin Romero
Los Angeles, CA |
The doc has no bedside manner. He makes his patients wait forever past appt times knowing they are paying for parking & the waiting room is smaller than a home bathroom with dozens of people cramped & no extra seating. 2 hours later he sees you for 5 minutes & rushes through questions. He doesn't answer everything & barely does any check up (didn't even put on gloves bc he didn't even touch/examine patient). It's a hassle to get any documents/lab results/future appointments. Go somewhere else.
Los Angeles, CA |
The office is tiny. There were over 10 people waiting in the room & hallway because there was only 5 seats & no standing room in the cramped office. Clerks spoke mostly only in Spanish. I don't look it, but I can understand some & I was affronted at how they were judging the patients--moving Hispanic names up the list while making the only black & white person there wait longer. They overbook patients with multiple coming in for the same timeslot & all waiting over an hour. Unpleasant visit.
