Patient Reviews (3)
in El Cajon, CA |
I've been going to this office for over ten years now. Karen, Donisha, and Autumn at the front desk are helpful. He has two physician's assistants, Brenda and Mike. I usually see Mike. He is AMAZING, and he treats you like you have a brain in your head, and at least in my case, he cares.

Have used him for years, as well as his assistant Steve, both have been great - and had been referred by family friends -
in San Diego, CA |
The admin staff at this place is the worst in the business. They dont give a crap about the patient, they are rude on the phone and in person.
