Patient Comments (2)
in Huntington Beach, CA |
I have a rotary cuff problem due to swimming. I wanted to try PRP for my shoulder to avoid surgery. I went for 3 treatments, paying out of pocket and was good for two years. When the pain came back from over using it, I tried Kaiser Permanente, since they started the treatment as well and my co-pay was only $10. It did not work for me as well. Yesterday, I went back for 2 more PRP shots to Dr. Wakim and already I can tell, it is going to work. It takes the right doctor for the PRP injections!

He is a good doctor but the front desk staff is not caring about patients and they put me on hold for 15 mins and they said they will call me in 2 mins but it takes 30 mins and I called them again and they put me on hold again and waiting for them to call me back
