What People Say About Dr. Roy Artal, MD

After finally getting a sleep study ordered (it took several phone calls to SleepMed directly), I went to Pasadena for the test. While I was there another patient had his four tires stolen from his car, - unsafe area, without security. I waited another month to get my CPAP machine and finally went to Pasadena again to pick it up. I have had the machine 5 months and have received no supplies (parts are routinely replaced after three months) and when I called to get the parts I found couldn't.

This man is a wonderful doctor, we adored him. Very professional, very bright, kind, funny, spent time with us, had concern for my well being and I would give him a 6 if I could. We feel we have found a real gem. Thank you Dr. Artal. Looking forward to our next visit. Leslie Magidsohn

Schedule for surgery and my own dr was not associated with cedars Sinai hospital. So i was referred to dr Artal for pre-op tests.I did not have any idea who he was but from my visit (I have great intuition) dr Artal was the best. He was informative, had patience, was caring and extremely knowledgeable. He was great in making sure I was taken care of by a cardiologist to make sure I received the right care before scheduled surgery. ********
