I was assigned to Dr. Banta by my medicare HPO Care More. Does not do appointments 45 min- hour wait. He never examined me at all. Spoke about his children who are now MD s. Started laughing in an inappropriate manner and started talking in a crazed manner about viagra. Screwed up my prescriptions and refused to write my 100mg seraquel and said I needed to see a psychiatrist. Unfortunately I am better informed than Dr.Bantra about the applications of certain medication. I will never go back to his office again and will ask Care More for another primary MD. Other than this Care More is excellent.

He can speak both English and Spanish which is a plus and is very kind and is in no way rude during my check ups. I definitely prefer having him over his daughter in law.

I do not recommend this doctor for everyone. I have been subjected to go to this doctor because my family has gone to him for many years but this last visit has pushed me over the edge. Every time you go in there you wait for hours then after you go in there is more waiting to be done. After the doctor comes in he spends less then 30 sec. to diagnose and then leaves. He is very negligent I was injured and he only gave me pain killers and send me home. It has been weeks and the pain has become unbearable the area has swelled and I have no mobility in that area. If he could have taken the time to at least inspect it, this would have no become a chronic problem.

Being new to L.A. this is the first doctor I tried here. The reception / nurse did a tuberculosis test and said it was positive based on a bump on my arm. Kind of scary. Then the doctor looked at it and said "no" it was negative. The bump was a natural cyst. I saw the doctor for a different concern and he told me it was nothing to be worried about. It showed up again a few weeks later and I went back. He then realized it was something that needed to be treated and could have been the first time.Will never go there again. Upset that you should be able to trust your doctors opinion as a professional but was very disappointed in this office.
