Why is this man still practicing? That's what I want to know. Unfortunately I have medi-cal and this is the doctor they wrote the referral for. I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel and nerve damage in both hands and forearms by a reputable Neurologist. I wouldn't let is so called doctor cut me...more

He fixed my sons broken arm which was a delicate operation. He was appalled that the emergency room let him go home with it broken completely through.
