Patient Comments (4)
South Pasadena, CA |
After driving for two hours to get to his office and waiting for an hour to see him, literally he spent less than 1 minute with me. He doesn't listen and cuts me off before I can finish my sentence. His listening skills are far below average. I am not going back and will not recommend to anyone.
in Las Vegas, NV |
He doesn't have much time, cut to the chase, told me my issue, and treated it. I'm short and sweet so like it that way.
Los Angeles, CA |
Didn't know the first thing about athletic injury. Didn't do tests. Was a jerk. Waste of money. Saw a physical therapist friend who felt around my neck and right away knew what was wrong and knew how to fix it.
in Irvine, CA |
Rushed into the exam room, never looks at me or my back. Flips through my chart and immediately orders a steroid injection at L4 and L5. What a scam!
