This kind and gentle man saved my life by removing a hemangiopericytoma in December of 2004. Christmas day was embolization and two days after that resection of a 6.5cm sphere from my right temple. I have had annual MRIs with no recurrence. He did this under an exhaustive work load and starting a new family. He has the kindness of a saint. This was at UCLA Med Center and was an emergency surgery for an unknown tumor.

This doctor's office staff is incompetent and incapable. While the doctor himself may have provided us with great care, the amount of aggravation, time and money his staff will cost you far exceeds any benefit you may have enjoyed at his hands. I promise you, this office is a nightmare you need not experience.

Wonderful doctor, very caring with a good character. He really thinks about patient needs and their schedule. He is very flexible and really knows his job. His office and staff are very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing this type of surgery.
