Patient Comments (1)
in Bakersfield, CA |
Dr. and staff were courteous, efficient, and accurate. They quickly scheduled me and saw me on time. There was a need for a referral due to an occular melanoma condition. The Doctor initiated this request quickly and to the best person available on the West Coast but the staff only completed the task after numerous personal follow up phone calls.
