Patient Comments (1)
Cypress, CA |
Best doctor I have ever come across. He know everything and if he doesn't he reads up on it. He is kind and understanding of the patient as a whole. Never gives up and handles all concerns. One or two of the office staff treat me quite rude and disregard my requests as a pest. Even to the point of never telling the doctor (even if the doctor tells me to call.) or hanging up on me.
