I would recommend Dr. Bustamante, he is a great doctor. His staff is the issue, they lack case management, never return phone calls and DON'T know how to handle prior authorizations, lack of urgency!

Dr Bustamamte did bilateral knee replacements for me in December 2013. I took a fall last month and both my femurs broke out from the prosthetic knees! New surgeon said those previous surgeries had not given me enough bone to withstand a fall. He revised gave me new prosthetic knees with longer femur extensions. Never again will I go to Bustamante!!!0
