Patient Comments (1)
Santa Cruz, CA |
The doctor is awkward/creepy. He may have years of experience in his field, but he is not a good doctor. He allowed my son, who has 'Lazy Eye' to go with that condition for many years with NO treatment. We went to see a much better doctor in SC, who treated all of us with dignity and respect, and treated my son's condition successfully. This doc is a QUACK. His receptionist is a total BI**. I do NOT recommend this office AT ALL. Go to doctor ALLAMAN! Allaman is the best ever!
