Dr. Rovelo was wonderful. She was compassionate, warm, & friendly. Office staff was just as great. I will be scheduling my procedure with Dr. Rovelo ASAP. One thing I would suggest is letting pts know if photos of their naked bodies will be taken. Although staff was highly respectful, it can be highly triggering to those with trauma.

When I was completing the survey on the 1st question, I hit no by mistake and on the last question. I hit no by mistake. I was very thoroughly impressed with the doctor and her concerns with my medical issue and also how friendly her staff was but I just wanted to clarify. I did make a long typo on my, my cellphone answering those 2 questions. Thank you.

The doctor cordial, professional and empathetic.

I believe the doctors needs to go to customer training for customer service. She was rude. She was disrespectful. She had no bed side manner in talking to a patient and then she actually wrote a report to my kidney doctor, which he came to me and he was disturbed by because he thought that she was wrong on the different things. She was trying to scare me so badly knowing that I'm a kidney patient. I know kidney people have open heart transplant, 8 hours. And she told me my surgery would be 5 hours. When I talk to other surgeons at Cedars Sinai, no. It was never a problem. With her? I don't know because I was heavy before and still a little bit heavy at 230.

I have been looking for a doctor to examine me for almost 2 years. I found Dr. Rovelo on accident waiting in urgent care to be seen and I'm happy I did. She was so thorough, kind, caring, and patient. She is very thorough with her explanation and confident in her decisions. I was even referred to her by another doctor which made me confident in my decision to choose her. She took all my worries away. I left her office very confident and happy.
