very cold bedside manner, said I was better off visiting ER for my recurring abscesses than having him perform surgery, I have already had to have surgery since visit.
I was very impressed with Dr. Pestana. He took a lot of time with me and carefully explained procedures. He was very good to answer all my questions and was not rushed.
Dr. Pestana was very thorough in his explanation regarding the procedure I was having, it made me very comfortable. I had gone to 2 other doctors and chose Dr. Pestana
He says what he has to say and doesn't belabor, thank goodness.
