Patient Comments (3)
Los Angeles, CA |
Unprofessional. Arrogant. Go elsewhere do yourself a favor. One of those guys with the attitude that he is above other people. Completely UNPROFESSIONAL.
Agoura Hills, CA |
Has god like attitude, did not discuss less invasive surgery. Surgery his way or no way. Refused to discuss alternatives forms surgery. His profile states into less invasive surgery, apparently even though young doctor appears not skilled/ knowledgeable in arthroscopy, surprising since young doctor-would think he would be skilled in less invasive surgery. Would not respond to most questions/emails, his responses to some were vague. Had arthroscopy surgery with another doctor. Bedside terrible!
Santa Barbara, CA |
I came to Dr. Kazanjian with several issues after not receiving good care from my previous GI surgeon. He was wonderful! Dr. Kazanjian is reassuring, a great listener, and very skilled/knowledgeable. He did a wonderful job on my surgery. Would recommend him for offering excellent patient care.
