Patient Comments (2)
in Rancho San Diego, CA |
Dr. Ochi was so wonderful with my son. We finally found a doctor who understood our frustrations with our sons health. He has had nothing but problems with his tonsils for over a year now. We battled pneumonia, snoring, strep throat, and tonsillitis endlessly since he turned 5. Other doctors seemed not to listen to my concerns or take them seriously. One visit with Dr. Ochi and he saw and addressed my frustrations and concerns. We are having surgery with him Sept 1. Cannot wait!

Even thought Dr. Ochi has a very busy practice, he spends a lot of time asking & answering questions. His patience seems endless. Dr. Ochi is the most caring and concerned physician I have had the pleasure meeting.
