I feel fortunate to have Dr. Rosales as my care provider. He is very caring and thorough. I feel that I am in the best of hands.

Not a bad experience -- but not great. I would like a deeper explanation of my problem and the potentials for more treatment.

No better doctor and staff can be found. Had excellent care. Would recommend to anyone. They all do the very best at making sure you are taken care of to the best of their knowledge and training.

Again, everyone in providers office makes what could be an upsetting concern w/diagnosis easier to handle.

#9. Very high.

January 2016
Dr Rosales said he would speak to Dr Pham re my having an MRI instead of a PET scan during my follow up appointments in May 2016 and get back to me the week of my January 2016 visit. I still haven´t heard back from him. It´s not a critical issue, but I do have a slight concern re Dr Rosales´ follow through.
