El Cerrito , CA |
Dr. Masem is a "god hand" doctor... for he left almost no scar on his patients after surgery. He is an extremely intelligent and skillful doctor with his hands. It could be frustrated for patients to have a long wait during their office visits, however, it is worthy to wait for "god hand" Dr. Masem to give them his precious time.
