    Dr. B. is an exceptional talented surgeon & the most caring, compassionate & understanding doctor ever. I can't even describe in words how amazing he is. I had Ovarian Cyst & Marsupialization. Both surgeries exceeded my expectation. I admitted I was more nervous with the second emergency surgery. Today is day 4 after surgery, I am not taking any pain killer nor in pain. Dr. B. really know how to operate & suture in a way that promote super fast healing. Thank you so very much, Dr. B. :)

    I got talked into performing genetic testing from Dr. Bustillo and his staff, and now I'm fighting with my insurance about covering the $4,500 it cost to perform those tests. I was told by him and his staff that if my insurance had any issue in covering the test that I would get a call before the test was conducted to make sure that I wanted to go ahead with it anyway. I didn't receive that call. NO ONE in Bustillo's office will return my calls, and now I'm battling it out with the insurance.
    Hello, this is Dr. Bustillo. I'm so sorry that you are having to battle your insurance company about the genetic testing. The company offering the test reassured us that that was not supposed to happen. Please leave a message with me at my new office (657)-241-9090 and I will do my best to remedy the situation. Please leave your name and birthdate, since I am not sure exactly who this is.

    I hate to say it, but although Dr. Bustillo seemed caring and a good listener, my experience with his staff is currently horrible. I switched to him on the recommendation of my neighbor. I went for my annual well woman visit, he ordered 18 tests! The lab wanted. $2100! I have called his office three times to find out which tests were run and what were the results. No one will call me back. I am having to deal with insurance now. The lab won't even tell me which tests were run and the results.

    Dr. Bustillo is an amazing doctor. He has amazing bedside manor. He treats everyone with so much compassion. He is so easy to talk too and listens to your concerns. I know that he has my best interest in mind. He always responds to my emails in a timely manor. His expertise is unmatched in his speciality. I am so proud to say he is my doctor!! I had a hysterectomy using the Davinci single site procedure. It is the best thing I ever did. The recovery was amazing!
