Patient Comments (2)
in Tustin, CA |
Took our son to CHLA after getting him seen by this doctor, referral from the CHOC's emergency room. Our son was having blurred vision and dizziness. Muhonen recommended numerous scans and possibly a biopsy! Went to CHLA and found out he had a middle ear infection. Goal by Muhonen is to runs tests and make a lot of money.

Dr Muhonen is knowledgeable and compassionate, he doesn't have the typical ego associated with his level of expertise. He does a great job of explaining complicated ideas and making them understandable.
