in Temecula, CA |
Wonderful concerned surgeon who takes extra time with you and makes you feel at ease and in good hands. My surgery went very well and he took extra measure to ensure that my incision was placed and sutured to prevent an ugly scar which I had not even thought about asking for. He was patient and kind and very experienced.
