Ratings for Dr. BRIAN K. Fenmore
I have been seeing Dr. Fenmore for over about 17 years now. I have never had a bad experience with him. In fact, when I moved 250 miles away from Tarzana, I still made the journey to see him even though it involved an overnight hotel stay because I was so comfortable with him. I have always found him to be an excellent and caring physician. You do have to make appointments a few months beforehand for annual exams and my wait is around 45 minutes to 1 hour. I did have one minor emergency and I was able to get him on the phone fairly quickly even though it was after hours. During the exam, he ALWAYS asks if I have any questions for him and he takes the time to explain whatever I need to know. I highly recommend him.
There are so many wonderful doctors out there .... so please stay away from this one!! He made a terrible error during surgery. What made matters worse was how he handled it afterwards - no accountability. Had the nerve to scream at me in an attempt to intimidate me. I should have reported him to the medical board and sued him for medical malpractice. I was so traumatized by the experience I needed to get some space from it. However I still intend to do both.
A bit of a wait at times, but well worth it! Once he is in with you, he will answer all your questions and address all concerns. He is advanced in his approach and open minded. Caring, intelligent, kind and thorough. Good sense of humor too! A+++ doctor!!!
Dr. Fenmore came recommended by a pharmaceutical rep who used to call on him. For the last 15 years I have happily made the long trek from ,Pasaden, sometimes in heavy traffic to stay with Dr. Fenmore. At first, I had no insurance, then a PPO, and now although I can only afford HMO insurance, I pay out of pocket to stay with him. A woman needs a good trusting relationship with her OBGYN. I can't conceive of going to a different GYN. Yes, he's so popular that you need to schedule months in advance, and often the wait is close to an hour, so prepare for it. I have driven out to Tarzana in pouring rain for an hour only to find that the doc was called away for an emergency delivery and I'll have to come back. Linda and the rest of the staff is very friendly. Once Dr. Fenmore is with you, he is not hurried or rushed. He is calm, soft-spoken, personable, and non-judgmental (even when I was smoking and taking BC pills!). Practically Zen-like. I wouldn't change doctors for the world.
Amazing doctor! He is always ahead of the game. Extremely knowledgeable. He is very patient even when he is very busy. His staff is always helpful. He goes the extra mile. I have never had an experience like the woman did when she called him in an emergency. I have had to call him in the past and he has always been supportive and compassionate. Also, his office always tries their best to accommodate you by squeezing you in if you are in any kind of distress. He covers a lot of territory (conditions, high risk patients, deliveries, etc) I highly recommend this doctor.
Very,very helpful and knowledgeable. The wait is frustrating, but you forget how annoyed you are once he comes in and spends as much time as you need answering questions and concerns. For pregnancy, he is very positive and treats the pregnancy as if it were special. A+ doctor.
