    Palmdale, CA |
    I saw Dr. Yusuf for a very cursory visit for minor surgery, I was to wait for his office to contact me to arrange a pre-op appointment. I never received a call so I called them and made an appointment. I arrived on time to find out they did not have me on their books for that day, this happened 2 more times. I've decided to go elsewhere due to the utter disrespect and horrible business acumen maintained within their office. This is a direct reflection of Dr. Yusuf and his practice as a surgeon
