Patient Comments (2)
orange, ca |
HORRIBLE!!! He is horrible and so is the staff!!! He hands out pills and orders test and leaves his staff to give you results over the phone. No medical guidance from this guy!! You can't get an appointment for a physical before a year out. He doesn't take new patients anyway. STAY AWAY!

Impossible to schedule appointments. Can take more than a year to schedule a physical. Test results are given over the phone by a woman in the office. No explanation of what they mean or what steps to take to improve them. Used to be a good option, not anymore!!! Assembly line medicine with no constructive health advice or explanation.
