in San Antonio, TX |
He met with my daughter one time about her liver cancer in December, 2016. Despite multiple calls he and his staff have done nothing to further her treatment. His staff is so unresponsive they don't even deserve one star!
in Tarzana, CA |
The worst doctor ever! He nearly killed me and I am paying dearly to this day, I received my care at Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles. Which would explain why he is now in TX.
