in Bakersfield, CA |
Best surgeon ever, repaired my FX femur in July of this year. I couldn't ask for a better doctor. Thank you Dr. Chandra Angela Villa
Bakersfield, CA |
Makes you wait 3 months at a time between visits and misdiagnosises the problem each time or "changes his mind" tells you you need surgery, but is in NO hurry to,actually do it. Even though it is my job that is at risk the longer I'm on disability, but what does he care if I am employed, right? A family member of mine is an FNP and when I told her of my experience she swore their office would stop referring patients there if they aren't going to help them. Choose any other ortho office
