28/07/13 5 4 5 5 We love Dr. Accousti, he's a 5++ in our book!! We are blessed to have Dr. Accousti as our granddaughter's physician for the past 10 years and can attest that he is an excellent surgeon and a very caring physician. We find the clinic staff accommodating. Unfortunately, there is a limited number of Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeons in LA so the chance of having to wait for any of them is great. We know we will have to wait, but that's OK... he performs surgery, provides clinical education for interns, and sees children in clinic. We would hate to think that he was worried about being late for 1 P.M. clinic as he was performing surgery on our child at 7 A.M.!! We'll wait for excellence over mediocrity any day. Dr. Accousti is very knowledgeable and instructing his interns as he sees your child so if you get lost in the medical jargon just ask him again, or ask him to write down the procedure and research it at your leisure. If your child needs an orthopedic surgeon...he's the one!!  Respond

23/04/13 4 1 5 5 I really like Dr A his is very nice and my boys do like him. I just wish he would be on time once in a while it gets very fustrating to drive over an hour into town with to small children under the age of 3 and watch him walk out the door for lunch 10 min after your appt SHOULD have started.I always schedule the first appointment after lunch and still wait over an hour EVERY TIME.I am not unreasonible I am in the medical field and have worked in hospitals and private offices I know how the system works but it does not make it right.The last time I was so aggravated I pretty much jump all over him He just walked in and started talking no hello how are they doing or a SORRY I am an hour and a half late the look of shock on his face said it all I guess one on really told him anything before. His time is NO more valuable then my time is to me and it is not right to keep children lock up in a small room all that time then expect them to coroperate I know it does not sound like it but we do love him  Respond
