“This was my first time at SCOI Porter Ranch. I liked the ample (and free) parking, in contrast to Van Nuys. Dr. Bawa's office was well organized, & I was seen on time, which impressed me. But most important, Dr. Bawa really helped me. I'm grateful my internist referred me to him, for he is a highly skilled professional.”

“Dr. Wahba listens and always makes an effort to do his best. I am so happy to have him as a medical resource. He's performed several procedures on me, and the staff at Bahamas Surgery center is warm and caring and have it together. Dr. Tobias Anesthesiologists is also outstanding, and the two of them together make one heck of an A-team with their wonderful staff to support them. If you require their services, do not hesitate. You are in amazing hands. Thank you.”

“I was amazed at how quickly I was called back to the exam room. Then it only took less than 5 minutes to get all of my information confirmed on the computer and for Dr. Merriman to come into the room. It took a few minutes for him to administer the shot in my shoulder, and he and his staff were as professional and personable as ever. I was done and back out to my car in probably 15 minutes, beginning to end. Amazing service.”
