Patient Reviews (1)
Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Rula is an outstanding physician. He took the time to explain all of our options regarding my son's appendicitis. Removing the appendix is default treatment, however there have been studies that treatment with antibiotics has been successful in certain cases and Dr. Rula gave us that as an option due to my son's particular case.
