Patient Comments (3)
Santee, CA |
after the 3 sessions that i have done for rubber banding for my hemorrhoids, it is still the same thing. He should have known that is my case needed a surgery but he did not say so just because doctors now care about money rather than the patient's health. I'm really not satisfied with the experience and I do not recommend this doctor to anybody especially after paying over $700 for nothing
Mira Loma, CA |
I have had 3 phone contacts with Elizabeth. She is very rude and difficult to understand. Makes me not even want to give the Dr. A chance. The difficult to understand I could get over if she was kind. But she is not.
Didn't even think I had uc even though I'd been diagnosed years prior twice. Wouldn't help manage pain or anything else for that matter. Horrible experience.
