Patient Comments (2)
Santee, CA |
After months of different doctors misdiagnosis of my daughter's digestive problems. Dr. Paths quickly diagnosed and cured her.
in Carlsbad, CA |
Cancelled my appointments several times. Did not clearly tell me that my colonoscopy was not at a Scripps facility. Sent the biopsies to a laboratory that is not in my insurance network and I have ended with a $1000.00 bill
