Patient Comments (2)
in Walnut Creek, CA |
Great doctor. Surgeon, and person. .
in Pleasant Hill , CA |
I sat and waited for him about an hour and he never showed up. My appointment was 12:30 he showed up 1:30. He came in with an attitude telling me that he had an emergency. When I was walked into the room I saw him sitting in his office so I did not understand what kind of emergency he was talking. He didn't review my chart and he was rude and intimidating. I felt as if he was about to attack me. He then told me that it was best for me to leave. I reported him to Standford Hospital.
