What People Say About Dr. Victor Pulido, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

You won't find a more dedicated, caring doctor on the planet. I had the good fortune of attending a clinic in Ventura, Californa, for 1 1/2 years where Dr. Pulido was the Director, overseeing/training residents and interns in their Osteopathic Manipulation Treatment rotation. From personal experience, he's an OMT Ace - and his teaching/training skills are exemplary. Santa Maria's gain is a great loss to Ventura. Dr. Pulido is an exceptional doctor - anyone in his care is in very good hands.

He is the best! Mostly all my family goes with him and we all love him. Inly doctor i feel confortable with anything, wether any questions i have or any prosedures he has to make. Always knows what to say wether good or bad to make me feel at ease. Delivered my 1st son vaginally and my second via c section. He was with me evtery step of the way. Bow is both my son's pediatrician. Couldn't feel anymore happier with his work :) although i live 15-20 min away, it's always worth the drive!
