in Santa Cruz, CA |
Dr Vittal is highly recommended by my surgeon and when I met with him he provided very complete information about my situation
in Morgan Hill, CA |
Worst idiot ever. Went to him in Dec. 2016 for upper right quadrant pain and elevated liver enzymes. Told me I was fat and had fatty liver. No physical exam or questions, only sarcasm and God Complex.He said nothing he could do or was going to do. Saw Dr at Stanford Liver Clinic. He listened and examined. Had Fibroscan and 8 blood test including FibreSure and CT. Yeah, found 5 abnormal things most serious being Renal Cell CA of right kidney, lesion in liver and lymph glands. WTH Dr Big Pants
