Patient Comments (4)
Los Angeles, CA |
Dr Hame was incredibly rude and condescending to me. She didn't take time to accurately assess anything, and was offended when I asked questions about her treatment plan. She dismissed everything I said and when i said I wasn't open to a certain treatment, discussed it with the resident as if I wasn't even there. She implied my previous physical therapy hadn't been successful after because I wasn't participating. Completely rude, unprofessional. Honestly a terrible person, I cried after the apt.
She seems like a very good doctor, very attentive and doesn't rush. That being said, I waited over an hour and a half to see her! It seems like getting into and out of the facility takes up enough of your time, it is unacceptable to wait that long once you are inside!

I am thankful to find Dr. Hame! She treated me with care and kindness and she paid attention to where my pain is. She asked me questions and she listened to me and examined me carefully. She ordered a MRI and is going to find out what is causing me so much pain. I wish I would have come to her a long time ago, she is awesome!

Dr Hame is very warm & nice to talk to. Recovery from repair of hip labral tear difficult & prolonged. 2 crutches for 4 months, one crutch for another two. 1 year of physical therapy, 8.5 months off work & never fully regained strength in left leg. The surgery failed after 15 months. In pain & unable to walk without a crutch. Dr Hame said new MRI unremarkable, just inflammation. Got 2nd opinion, & had complete revision surgery by new surgeon 18 months after original surgery by Dr Hame
