He will double dip

He will charge Medi-cal and the patient. Even after he was warned of this illegal act in a certified letter which he signed and accepted, he still has the audacity to send me a bill. Do you know what I do with it? I send it to the police station and file a police report every month. Keep doing it mister Jaivin, as you're helping me gather more and more evidence and proof of your illegal behavior. You are going to prison very very soon. And for the rest of you contemplating whether he is good not, not only does he suck, he also has no values and ethics. He is a criminal. I wouldn't trust him at all. If you can't follow the laws of our country, how can you be a good person? You can't.

He lied to me

He told me he accepts Medi-Cal. And now sends me a bill every month for $550. Dr. Idiot Jaivin, don't you know it's illegal to charge a Medi-Cal patient????? Continue billing me, I am gathering more and more evidence every month to put you in prison. Don't you know not to mess with the government???? Or do you think it's ok to bill a Medi-Cal patient???? If I were you, I would forget the bill. Aint gonna happen. Otherwise, if you dare to to do anything illegal, I will make sure you find yourself in prison for a very very long time. I promise this online. Let's not forget you misdiagnosed me as well. You were way off mister.

How did he win all these awards???

He paid to remove all the truthful comments about him, because they were negative. This so-called Jaivin is incompetent. Has no people skills. He was so rude to me during my appointment. Very impatient. He doesn't deserve any of the awards from If you want a real orthopedic surgeon, go to Cedars-Sinai. That's where all the real doctors are at who deserve awards from Otherwise don't even bother with this crazy Jaivin. He wanted to inject cortisone into my fractured talus bone instead of casting me. How dumb can one be? Apparently, Jaivin is beyond dumb. It's unfortunate is endorsing such a bad doctor. I'm not even a doctor and I knew that's not the propert treatment. Luckily for me, I found a really good doctor who knows this idiot and said "James, I should call you Dr. James from now on because you are smarter than an orthopedic surgeon." Shook my hand and said, go tell everyone about this bozo so they won't waste their time with him.

Dr. Eh-dee-ma

I call this so called doctor Dr. Eh-dee-ma, because that's his favorite word. The entire time during my visit he kept saying I have eh-dee-mah in my ankles. I'm not American so he kept correcting my prounciation of this word. Most doctors wouldn't care. But this guy does. He doesn't know anything else about ankles so he decided to correct my prounciation of this word instead of treating my fracture. I had two fractures but this dumb-dumb called them eh-dee-ma. He has the audacity to bill me $550 per month for misdiagnosing me and for acting like a biggot! I guess when you don't have blonde hair and blue eyes, some doctors don't care to spend time where it matters, ie examining my ankle. Some biggots and racists are just more concerned about correcting your pronunciation, which is irrelevant. Dr. Eh-Dee-Mah, you need a slap in your face for how you mistreated me. Grow up!
