Dr. Katkhouda, was my only option in Southern California if not the whole world that was Competent in an adrenalectomy on my right Side.My surgery was complex an in actuality No surgeon would accept me to conduct the Procedure. The reason being you have to be Very precise and superiorly confident in your Hands as a surgeon to undertake my procedure. Let me say all is irrelevant when Dr. Katkhouda is in the room,God truly blessed his eyes and his hands.He has an Aura! I am alive!
The worst of the worst there is as far as doctors go! Arrogant, unprofessional, more concerned about what you wear to the office than what you came for. I have been seriously ill in need of a surgery and this bad excuse for a doctor comes in and tells me that my case is difficult so his analogy would be that he is a pilot and he is heading towards a storm, and he prefers to land and run home than try to navigate the storm, what? Said he would call me in a few days and let me know if he would help me, I just get a call from his nurse, who can't even read a op report, telling me that he wouldn't be taking my case, and this is THREE months after he was supposed to call me, just please don't ever go to see him, or anyone at this horrible hospital, dirty, and you have to wait for over 2 hours to even see the doctor, by far the worst experience I have ever had at any healthcare facility.
