Patient Reviews (7)
Carson, CA |
You go to the clinic and wait for almost 2 hrs then the doctor sees you for less than 2 minutes. To think my case was a breast lump, which is crucial. She is nice and seems trustworthy but she is always in a hurry and doesnt bother to ask if you have any questions or not. And contacting them takes forever. This happened to my coworker too. Stay away.

She's great I wouldn't pick any other Doctor
in Los Angeles |
She is absolutely amazing. staff are great. but most importantly she put the needs of my and my baby's health first. When I went into labor she was at the beach, she gave the nurses specific instructions and when she got there my baby was out in 20 minutes, she's a Rock Star love her dearly.
in Hawthorne, CA |
she is hands down the BEST obgyn i have ever had, she is very understanding, kind, and compassionate, the long wait time is worth it, she's very willing to work with you and help you fully understand everything she's discussing with you, has emergency hours. As much as i hated her drawing blood from me what felt like every visit, i knew it was because she cared about me and making sure i got the best. i would, and have referred every singe one of my female friends to her.
