Patient Comments (1)
in Granada Hills, CA |
He is a very caring doctor who goes out of his way to make sure his patients are taken care of. I have been his patient for many years, as were my parents and siblings. And now my children. I was wonderful with my parents at the end, went way above the call of duty, and he is now just as wonderful with us. He actually called me on a Sunday to talk about a question I had. Not too many doctors would be so caring.
