I attempted to visit the dr. in his Westlake Village office. If time is important to you, don't use this doctor. I waited 1 hour for my first appt. and was advised that the dr. left. Sorry buddy. Due to his reputation I made another appt. 2 weeks later. Upon arriving I was advised that the dr. was 20 minutes late and I was 3rd in the queue. Unacceptable; I voted with my feet and left. There are other doctors that care about running a business and their patients.
