  • Apr 16, 2019

    I saw Dr. Andrei and I liked him very much, didn't have any problems with him. The only problem was with the message when I made the appointment. I explained in detail what I needed to see him for, he didn't get the entire message. He was supposed to be in procedures that day, they called him from that to see me. So that was in his favor, so, and I liked him very much. No problem with him whatsoever. I would also like to say something about Dr. Almond, and Endel, I think, and also the doctor I saw in dermatology. I did not respond to either one of those questions, and they are both very acceptable, and I'll go back to see them. Again Dr. Sdrulla was just fine.
