      This man should not be allowed to practice on living beings. Like others, I saw him for a small and benign issue. He described it both pre and post surgery as a small pimple in my tongue. Yet he managed to sever the main muscle in my tongue. Yes he deformed my tongue severely. He would not explain his error and instead gave me painful cortisone shots in the area, perhaps hoping they'd perform a miracle. Also I now understand this is medically dangerous to give so many cortisone shots so quickly.

      Yes, this man shames his patients, hurts them, has offensive breath and should not be in practice. I have had to live with the damage he did to me a number of years back.
      in San Diego, CA |
      He is extremely overpriced. He is also, very condescending and rude. He has no bedside manner. I have a bad gag reflex and he placed an instrument up my nose and down my throat. I was in horrible pain and visibly upset. Instead of removing the instrument he continued. He made me feel ashamed for being in pain and upset. Do not go to this doctor. He is not worth the cost.
      in San Diego, CA |
      Beginning was nice but during the appointment he poked my ear so hard I jumped out of my seat never apologizing for it. Arrogant and not sensitive to patients. Will never return to him.
      San Diego, CA |
      Awful experience. He should not be in medicine.
      Arrogant and dismissive of my concern.
      in San Diego CA |
      Very attentive, knowledgable and professional.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
