Los Angeles, CA |
Looked at x-ray, said all looked fine and seemed to want to call it done. Not interested in checking anything further. Spent about 90 seconds. Have had shoulder pain for six months with limited mobility.

I found him to be rude and condescending. He spent very little time with me and did not seem interested in the cause of my pain.
in Laguna Niguel, CA |
Big difference between on his behavior before and after operation. He ruined my wife's knee on a simple minuscules surgery. I wish we would done our research before let the butcher does his job. Save your knee or shoulder and run away from him............

Amazing surgeon. Did an excellent job on my son's knee. Couldn't ask for anything else. Also a nice guy!
