Patient Comments (1)
in Lakeside, CA |
When I could not get an appointment with ENT thru my 5 letter san diego medical group, UNTIL after the first of the year, I found Dr. Azer. He got me in the next day to diagnose an chronic ear infection. Correct prescription and procedure to clear it up in a week, after follow up. The office in not the most up to date décor. But old school medical attention works!
