    I can't imagine going anywhere else but UCSF. I've been in healthcare for 42 years and the communication and professionalism I've experienced at UCSF is beyond reproach. I've had care at Stanford in the past and it was not comparable.

    Hard to answer. I liked him very much but the no show no follow up is a bit alarming. Had a very hard time getting a person to help. Waiting for contact from you.

    Dr. Odisho listens and will give his expert medical opinions. He treated me in a very professional way.I appreciate it when he ordered a test that is non invasive as biopsy but could give similar results.
