    Patient Reviews (1)
    in Pico Rivera, CA |
    The Dr. performed surgery for joint replacement/broken femur on my mother. He made it clear not to bear weight for 6 weeks. 5 days later, care center staff contacted his office to approve weight-bearing . His staff approved weight-bearing, yet accepted no responsibility for the blunder (even after he admitted his staff were not even given a patient's name prior to approval). When taken for subsequent xray, he tried to ignore the obvious adverse affect and tried to blame it on "rotation".
