Patient Comments (4)
in Lakeside, CA |
the worst I've ever seen. Did absolutely nothing for my fractured heel bone because I didn't have insurance. Very rude, waste of time. Didn't know the difference between a fracture and a sprain. Better off treating yourself, which is what hemade me do
in San diego |
The doctor and staff are rude. Entire appointment was 45 min only 1-2 min was spent with doctor he didn't even look at injury not to mention didn't seem like he cared either WORST ORTHOPEDIC DOCTOR EVER!!!...
in San Diego, CA |
This man was RUDE, UNCARING, doesn't listen, and thinks he knows what you want, even though you go in for something else. I was totally humiliated and felt demeaned by him. I wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone.
in La Mesa Ca. 91941 |
Spent 5-10 minutes on review of my MIR ,asked does it hurt? Then said you need surgery! He was the rudest Dr I have ever seen! After surgery never talked to me! A week or so after surgery pain was over the top(7 or 8, on pain scale), after talking to office they called said I need a MIR(again)? They called back and said I have to much arthritis in my neck and can't help me (so why did he cut me?) I'm still in major pain and need a pain management Dr,the rest of my life!!!????????
