San Diego, CA |
I have seen doctor Bestoso for several years due to a chronic kidney disease that I have. I recently went into his office for my yearly check up only to discover that he no longer practices at Scripps Green Hospital and that I did not have an appointment at all, despite the fact that I had made my appointment the year prior called several weeks prior to confirm the date, time and location of my upcoming appointment. Horrible that he and his staff would treat patients this way and not reschedule.
