Patient Comments (1)
in Carson, CA |
He's the tops. The very best in his field. Very professional yet personable at the same time. He is the epitome of his field. In the waiting room you hear patients speaking of the excellent outcomes of their treatment and/or surgery. He must be in the top 10 in his field. He created a new method of performing the surgery with better outcome and less down time.
