Patient Comments (2)
in La Verne, CA |
This was my first visit and they were very accommodating in making the appointment. I liked the staff; they were very courteous and explained everything well to me prior to doing anything. The Dr. Is very blunt so some might be put off by this but I like this in a Dr. He was very thorough in his examination and his findings and was very explicit in what I needed to do on my end to recover quickly and well. Would definitely recommend him AND his office staff to everyone.
Mira Loma, CA |
There is no ZERO, he only gets a 0.So I will put a 1.He is worthless!! All he does is look at the computer while the patient is sitting there wasting time.I would NEVER recommend him.He should try to listen to the patient,& not be so into reading his computer.WORTHLESS, HE IS.HIS HELPER SHOULD BE THE DR.AFTERALL HE HAD FEELINGS,& CARE FOR PATIENT.OLD DR.WOULD RATHER HAVE PATIENT TELL HIM HOW GREAT OTHER DRS.ARE.I WOULD NOT LIE.BETTER TO HEAR THE TRUTH.
