This doctor is an extremely difficult person that is not focused on patient needs nor outcomes. From simple items such as scheduling and follow-up to important issues such as addressing urgent medical issues, he is appears apathetic and seems to resent his job. On several occasions, I overheard his nurses complaining about working with him. There are several other doctors at UCLA that are far superior choices. Avoid this doctor.
The UCLA facility is very crowd, complicated and super expensive parking lot. Some of the nurse staff is very arrogant and unfriendly. The doctor maybe has a good reparation, and maybe he's nice and try to be on time, but he seems very busy, and rushing for the next appointment. Just not a personal feeling. The place is like a public hospital and not like a private medical center.
