My dad just had the Laryngectomy done by Doctor Tjoa from UCI. He is such as wonderful doctor who is thoughtful, polite, incredibly kind and considerate. I would recommend him highly to anyone, for anything. He is the best! Thank you!
Dr. Tjosoa joa has golden hands on my surgery, very fine cut and left almost no scar. He’s open-minded, joyful, kind, down-to-earth, and patient with me. He shows deep caring and asks details of symptoms. He provides fast yet thorough, careful, and effective examinations. He has made good and accurate decision on my treatment. I cannot thank him enough, and thus write my praises here so he’s recognized by his kindness and professions in what he’s practicing. I am forever grateful to him.
