in Hesperia, CA |
Dr. Pathi is a excellent surgeon. How his staff lacks people skills. I require certain paperwork to be filled out before the Disability Company will approve and send me my disability payments. Their lack of caring and understanding about this situation is unsatisfactory. Trying to feel better is hard enough, but to have to spend hours on the phone trying to get my paperwork filled out is completely unacceptable. This delays my payments for weeks.

Dr Pathi is the only Physician that I would want to do the kind of hand surgery that I needed done. I went to him for his knowledge and experience and skills that you want a Doctor to have. I highly recommend him to any one that needs his specialty.

Dr.Pathi is a breath of fresh air. How a smile and a handshake can go so far. Very caring and takes the time to help you understand what is needed. Only downside is the wait. Office staff are very friendly too.
