    Patient Comments (2)
    Los Angeles, CA |
    I would leave 0 stars if I could. Extremely rude, poor bedside manner. Decided he didn't think I had an eye problem before he even examined my eye. Ignored my concerns because he had already decided everything was due to "allergies" even though one eye is fine and the other one has a problem. AVOID this doctor!
    I have always taken my family here, I used to take my grandma to his father. I take my dad here now, however the receptionist is extremely rude, mere mentioning that my dad is having trouble driving set her off. Being a doctor myself I would never stand for my staff speaking to patients in such a curt and rude manner. Hearing your patient out is not what should be considered angering. And responding to them suggesting you don't have time to take note of their chief complaint is unacceptable.
