Dr. P is great; he is a busy NS though, and it can be a bit difficult to get an appointment or schedule surgery. If I had one complaint it would be (while UCLA is a teaching hospital) making sure that the residents on his service relay information to his patients as he is still the attending and responsible for anything - and everything - they do. He is caring, thorough, and skilled with the surgery itself. He was very helpful in my aftercare....but, one of the residents changing medications and stopping others while I was inpatient, and not knowing until I requested it from the nurse, is unacceptable. He said he wasn't aware the resident did so, which is still his responsibility.
