By Cedars-Sinai Patienton Oct 30, 2019

Yes again, I'd like to say I was very happy with Dr. Mamelak. He's been my doctor for a very long time now, and he did surgery on my brain, and I felt most comfortable after the surgery, and I did all of the actions I needed to do to improve myself, my physical self, and my mental stability as well. So I would offer his presence for anyone any of my friends ,or anybody that I know, or don't even know, but he would be really great, and a wonderful person to talk to, and very informative.

Dr. Mamelak was very personable and very caring and very, very nice and definitely made me feel very confident that I was okay, and that I should not be worried about having a brain tumor. So I would highly recommend him for my friends family. Thanks so much.
