Patient Comments (8)
Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Bose is amazing. I highly recommend him.
Northridge, CA |
I have never met a doctor that has such a positive attitude on life. Dr. Bose is very professional and puts his patients at ease under sometimes less desirable situations. Everyone in his office are extremely friendly and courteous.
in Ridgecrest, CA |
Dr. Bose is genuinely concerned about his patients. He takes the necessary time to see that the patient understands what is happening.
in Simi Valley, CA |
Dr. Bose is very patient, and extremely thorough. He is truly an expert in his field and took over my various conditions/symptoms with CSF disorders, eyesight loss and sleep apnea complications. I have many Dr.'s, and many during my life of 55 years. Dr. Bose is the finest physician/surgeon I have ever worked with as a patient, and highly recommend him and staff.
in Sherman Oaks, CA |
What can you say about the kind and compassionate gentleman who saved your mother's eyesight? Can you ever adequately express your eternal gratitude? Dr. Bose is a saint, a solar figure and a man of light as he literally brings light to the lives of his patients, many of whom have complicated vision problems. A highly respected and benevolent physician, Dr. Bose has been a nurturing presence for my Mom for nearly 5 years, when she was diagnosed with a rare condition: temporal arteritis.
in Woodland Hills, CA |
After having been to many neurologists and eye doctors, I was referred to Dr. Bose and finally received the medical eye care and treatment I needed. One neurologist actually told me to wear and eye patch to deal with my problem.
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Bose is the most thorough and calming doctor. He always explains everything to me in a manner that I understand and my anxiety level is lowered. I am so thankful that he's my doctor.
in Los Angeles, CA |
Great bedside manner, very smart and knew exactly what was going on and how to fix it. Rare these days to have a doctor that actually talks to you, explains things to you, and also examines you without relying on only data from their fancy equipment, and Dr. Bose is exactly that.
