in Long Beach, CA |
Dr. Sanati is an experienced and highly professional doctor. His compassionate and humble nature has been both reassuring and realistic. With respect and patience, he has made valuable, up-to-date treatment suggestions while also listening to my persistent questions regarding treatment options. At times, he has approved of my requested "add-ons", while others times, no...followed by an explanation. I am still alive thanks to Dr. Sanati. What more could one ask for?
