Patient Reviews (3)
in Sherman Oaks, CA |
I came to a hand surgeon for consultation and diagnosis of carpal tunnel. I understand a physician who may consider another diagnosis. But an insulting remark, "you would have to be a mutant to have carpal tunnel" What kind of Dr. says that to a patient? A rude Dr. After completing all tests he ordered the results of the nerve conduction study which stated carpal tunnel was still ignored by this hand surgeon! Obviously self involved, rude and a Dr. who simply doesn't care. Very unsatisfactory
in Van Nuys, CA |
Rude, unprofessional, temperamental man that not only provide any kind of care but asked the patient to leave the office because I wouldn't agree with his illogical explanation of why they couldn't straighten a crooked hand. He didn't even bother to examine the hand.
in Los Angeles, CA |
I would highly recommend Dr. Raven111 he is very knowledgeable, compassionate and professional. He and his staff went way out of their way to help my sister whom had cut off the tip of her middle finger. We were so concerned and stressed but Dr Raven and his staff put us at ease. I'm so grateful and fortunate to have found Dr Raven and would highly recommend him and his clinic.
