SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr. Guilleminault is easily one of the best doctors I have ever had for my health care.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

Everybody at the practice is focused on shovelling people through. Now you have experts in the field teaching residents to rush. The dr. was only interested in what he could see of my body. Must not believe in histories.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

I saw Dr. Robinson & Dr. Kawaii from the sleep clinic. Both were great.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

I have confidence in this doctor by his explanation of my problem.
