We we're in tears after my mother was diagnosed with an aneurysm, the location of the anuerysum was in the center of the brain. While admitted in a hospital in San Diego the physician stated nothing else could be done for her, this physician had the worse bedside manners but nurses told us that he was the best. Although our insurance company did not pay for out of network we still searched for second, third and fourth opinion. The last physician we spoke told us about an excellent doctor at UCLA, Dr. F. Vinuela, we immediatly called to make an appointment. Its been 5 years since that call and we still have our mother, the procedure Dr. Vinuela performed was life saving! Not only is he a great medical physician but he is also a kind, sweet, caring person. Every year she has her yearly check up the entire family wants to go just to see and thank Dr. Vinuela. He has given us hope and a mother for many more years to come. God bless him, we love him and are eternally grateful.
