Patient Comments (1)
in Sherman Oaks, CA |
I had a difficult pregnancy that was frightening for me to go through. I felt comforted knowing that Dr. Kumetz was spearheading my birth plan. She ensured that my baby girl arrived safely into this world. Dr. Kumetz also happens to be a very gifted surgeon; My cesarian scar healed very quickly and beautifully. Her entire staff is professional, comforting and warm.
