this guys practice is a joke... the surgery he performed well, but his bedside manner sucks as I had to wait for his approval for releasing me and he never showed up, he got pissed at the nurse for calling him at 10:00 a.m., and she ended up telling me at 3:00 p.m. that I didn't need to wait any longer and let me go herself. I had an appointment with him 11/20/17 at 2:00 to get a release form for work and he wasn't even there. I took a half day of work and drove an hour to get there... LAME

I was in emergency because of pain( sharp hospital in La Mesa) so that I had to accept Dr Koumjian to operate me, because there was no any other surgeon available in that time. All he did on my esophagus was pointless. In fact, he did like an executioner AND NOT LIKE A PROPORTIONAL SURGEON . He did mistake on his surgery confessing about his wrong recognition asked for another operation just after one day of very hard surgery. Very very bad experienced with this surgeon.
