in Playa Del Rey, CA |
Underwent abdominal surgery with her. While she was willing to perform it the day I was in the ER, she admitted she had a long day in the OR and as it was not an emergency she would do it on Saturday. That's what was done. It was done laparoscopically and I cannot find the scar. Her office called me the evening of the surgery to check on my condition. I had minimal post op discomfort- slight irritation in incision site.

She removed my perforated appendix at St. John's Hospital in 2014. She's got a great bedside manner & I really liked her.
in Pacific Palisades, CA |
This is one of the most caring and skilled doctors I've ever experienced. No doubts, no qualms, 100% fantastic experience.
