Patient Comments (2)
San Diego, CA |
Appreciated Dr. Saenz professionalism and straight forward approach.
in San Diego, CA |
It was the worst experience of our life's. Our child almost died due to lack of care and interest for the patient. Very disappointing that he would send our child home without any antibiotics and my child was rushed back to the E.R. with an infection after being sent home from an appendix surgery. Stay clear from this man, he does not care about his patience and has very bad bedside manners.
