in Beverly Hills, CA |
Finally, a primary care doctor I would choose a health plan around. He's knowledgeable, efficient but thorough, and won't bat an eyelash at any question you may have. A talented and personable doctor surrounded by a solid support staff within a top-tier practice--the SoCal Mens Medical Group.
