What People Say About Dr. Dale Di Stefano, MD
Reply
He was horrible! Do not go to him. He is a good ol boy attitude and has a god complex. He does not listen to the patient and speaks rudely about other doctors in his profession. He even was disagreeing what my other doctors of mine, in other specialties, were prescribing me. He is affiliated with UCI, so if you already went to a UCI doctor, don't waste your time on him.
