great doc, highly recommend
in Yukon, OK |
The absolute rudest staff I have ever encountered in the medical field. I find it very difficult to trust the judgement of one who hires and tolerates such behavior.
in Norman, OK |
He is good surgeon but does not have any bedside manner
in OKLAHOMA City, Oklahoma |
Dr. Justiz removed my old battery for my stimulator that had died. Then put in a new battery, an even better one now that I don't have to charge at all. Everything went without a hitch. Also he was very caring and understanding thru the whole procedure.
