Patient Comments (1)
in Beverly Hills, CA |
The Dr took alot of time since my history is extensive and he is very good at what he does. He has taken extra precations with me due to all my medical problems since I may have to have a carotid artery tumor removed he has shown that he wants me stable in all other areas before he would even perform a surgery on me. He was very patient and explained everything I needed to know and very very caring and personable. I was VERY impressed and I have been to MANY Drs. even at Mayo clinic..
