Dr. Combs is "family doctor" in that he listens to his patients and builds a relationship based on his personal knowledge of you, as a patient. His staff is efficient and respectful and, when you're sick, they make every effort to get you into the office promptly.

In need of an appointment quickly due to illness, allergy testing, need a diagnosis? Then don't expect satisfaction & attention. My husband & I couldn't be seen by Dr. Comb's, we were redirected to urgent care consistently. We may have seen him personally maybe four times within two years. The bedside manner wasn't warm, friendly, attentive, or respectful. We have been disregarded as if we're apart of a herd. After countless phone calls to meet with our doctor & rejection we're switching.

One of the only Doctors I have been with that actually cares, and he knows what he's doing.
in Temecula, CA |
I would recommend Dr. Combs because I have been his patient ever since moving here to Temecula over 12 yrs ago and being recommended by my sister in law. I wouldn't change doctors for nothing. Not only does he take time with you and explain and listen to you, he really truly cares about you. He is loving and kind and always has time for you even in his busy and rushed days. In all my years he is the very best of the best in my eyes.

Thank you Dr. Combs for your continued help and support. He is at the forefront of changing the way doctors can see and care for their patients. I know I’m always in extremely caring hands.

Great Doctor! Great Staff!!!! :)
in Menifee, CA |
First facility I've been to in the last 5 years that actually listened to me, solved my problems, and always followed up on my issues. I don't know about anyone else, but after getting the runaround at other facilities and not paying attention to me, I appreciate Dr. Combs' office and his staff. I'm not going anywhere else.

Dr. Combs seems like a fine doctor but his staff are idiots and we will never return to his facility. The Office manager Mark is clueless and they have staff that works remotely which explains why they don't know what is going on in the office. Don't waste your time. Awful customer service.
in Temecula, CA |
The dr. I've ever been to. No compassion for human life. They are all just 9-5ers. Don't go here!!
in Temecula, CA |
I would highly recommend Dr. Combs thanks to his amazing staff. I was in and out of the office in no time. I always appreciate the same day appointments offered.
Murrieta, CA |
He doesn't feel responsible for patient's health. All he concerns is to add more and more patients to his list!! His office manager is extremely rude. Dr must be okay with it otherwise he wouldn't have hired him! As old saying if you want to see how a manager is you better meet his staff first!!They treat a patient like an experiment!
in Sun City Ca |
This is a amazing office and staff. I was so pleased with Dr Combs. His staff( Mark, Jeff, Shannon and the Medical assts and all learning students are the best I have ever seen. They take care of me and make me feel like I can ask anything.
in Murrieta, CA |
The staff is rude and when I called they do not follow up or have him call me. When I asked them to get prior records after a month they still had not done that.
in Temecula, CA |
Dr. Combs and his very excellent staff are the best thing that ever happened to the Temecula valley community. He is a professional and caring physician who goes the extra mile to give you the best care possible. I have never had a more compassionate, intelligent, and honorable physician. He refers you to the best specialists that he knows in the area, gives same day appointments, educates you on your condition, and provides you with the best all around care available.
