I saw Dr. Paz when he was a rookie, more than 20 years ago. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Squeamish Cell Carcinoma of the Tonsil. My surgery took 14 hours with 5 surgeons and I spent almost 5 months in the City of Hope. The care was unsurpassed, all the nurses at the time were RN's and were awesome, bedside and care. I have since recommended other cancer patience to Dr. Paz and the City of Hope.

If your a female going to this doctor for cysts in your breasts, DON'T!!! Careless doctor who will try to remove your whole breast for just a cyst. I was told I had a cyst and went to him to find out my options, which were, 1. I could take Cancer Hormone Medication (even though I have no cancer!!!) or 2. Get my whole breast removed I left the office in tears because of the way he treated me. So glad I got a second opinion, I was scheduled for my cyst removal the next day, God is watching you!
