Excellent bedside manner. He truly listens and explains.
Los Angeles, CA. |
Dr. COMBS IS EXCELLENT. BUT THE PROBLEM THAT LEADS TO HIM GETTING A ONE STAR POOR STATUS IS THAT HE HAS FAR TOO MANY UNPROFESSIONAL PEOPLE WORKING UNDER HIM. HIS OFFICE STAFF IS THE WORST IN TOWN AND ITS KNOWN IN THE COMMUNITY.
