What People Say About Dr. Daniel Bethencourt, MD
Reply Flag
I took my mother to see this doctor regarding her mitral valve prolapse. I was shocked by his almost immediate recommendation to perform an extensive, and we later learned, unnecessary surgery. I looked up his records via the California Medical Board website and was shocked by the scrutiny he is currently under by the board for poor outcomes. THIS IS PUBLIC INFORMATION! We left and never went back. She is being treated conservatively at UCLA.
