Los Angeles, CA |
Incredibly rude receptionists who make in nearly impossible to make an appointment--even in urgent situations. I would definitely recommend going through another office.

Other review may be on wrong doctor. I don't think he works at Barlow. He is a pulmonologist. Not who treated his wife. Not in San Fernando Valley. Dr. Adelson has been my doctor for 30 years. He is caring, competent and accessible. I give him 5 stars.
in Chatsworth, CA |
One of the worst doctors I've ever encountered. If I could give ZERO stars, I would. No decent bedside manner, no compassion for his patients, and no enthusiasm for his practice whatsoever. I cannot vouch for any office visits. He was foisted on my wife at Barlow Hospital when she was recovering from a severe brain aneurysm. He flat out said in front of her that she would never eat, walk, talk, or speak again. Well, we are two years later and she has made almost a 95% recovery. He SUCKS!
