Patient Comments (2)

Dr Braganza was very professional. He fit me into his schedule last minute to accommodate an emergency. He explained the procedure throughly and was extremely skilled.
Santa Barbara, CA |
1. Talked down to me 2. Didn't take the issues seriously 3. Rolled his eyes & scoffed multiple times at what I said about my sinuses 4. Didn't explain what he was doing 5. Didn't respect me as a patient 6. About the pounding in my ear - Conversation: - Me: When I have extra mucus I have a bad noise/vibration in my ear - Dr. Probably just your heart beat, next time check that - Me: It's a vibration not a beat - Dr. That's harder to figure out - That was it for the conversation
