Patient Comments (2)
in Chico, CA |
Went through a total ankle replacement and had an excellent experience with Dr. Lian.
Sharon was very nice when I made my sons appointment. When I got there I didn't have the paperwork because I misunderstood. She was very rude that I didn't follow her directions. Her line always goes to voicemail when you call. Then if she calls you back and you don't answer she gets annoyed. Dr. Lian was a nice guy and I felt good about his expertise, but I will not go back because Sharon is a real hassle to deal with.
