Allen is one of the nicest men that I have met. HOWEVER Dr. FAWCETT IS NOT. He does not care about his patients, he only wants to move on to the next person. If you voice concerns about your health, he will question your character or completely ignore you. He makes assumptions about your character based on your age and class. He merely wants your money and to charge you ridiculous prices for minor check ups. I oaid 300 dollars for a doctor to ignore my concerns during a check up and physical. He

Dr. Fassett is one of the best doctors in San Diego. This guy is awesome, he has something like over 20 years of medical education, he is an ear nose and throat specialist plus surgeon and plastic surgeon as well a family practitioner. My daughter and I swear by his excellent care for over 20 years. Doesn't get any better than Dr. Fassett. I would highly recommend him.

Can't get a return call for a referral. I've been trying for 1 month now to no avail. Now I've got to cancel my podiatrists appointment that I've had for more than a month. Looks like I'll be living in pain.
