Patient Comments (2)
in Escondido, CA |
Bad experience with this person. It took 10 months just to see him once and to get a simple blood test done. They completely ignored my calls and I had to fight to get the results of the genetic testing so I could find a real neurologist. Unprofessional, cold and uncaring.

Best doctor that I have ever met! So grateful because he truly cares about his patients and doesn't just brush off everything as "it's just anxiety." I just wish I would have met him sooner.
