seems like a nice guy. but his wait times are unbelievable. waiting in the office, waiting in the room. terrible terrible. both time my whole afternoon was wasted. UNBELIEVABLE
in Costa Mesa, CA |
I was diagnosed with cancer of the parotid gland. Prior to surgery I made the mistake of going on-line and looking at pictures of people who'd had this surgery. Almost made me prefer dying of cancer! Dr. Waki and his team did a marvelous job. Cancer free and still with a handsome face, well cancer free and a face that looks natural is more than I could have asked for. The after care by Dr. Waki and his staff has been caring and very professional.
in La Habra, CA |
I waited almost 6 weeks for an appointment with this doctor. He refused to see me because I wouldn't give my SS Number. Even after I showed Fiscal Responsibility with Valid Insurance and a Co-Pay. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT give your SS Number to a doctor if you have Insurance! Your Insurance Company already has it. The individual doctors not only don't need it, but they are not allowed by law to collect it if you have Valid Insurance.
