Dr. Landman completed kidney cancer surgery on my dad close to 6-7 years ago now and I was impressed with his bedside manner, experience, knowledge and most importantly his confidence. Little did I know that I would end up having kidney cancer surgery most recently. I have found that in speaking with Dr. Landman he is direct, to the point and is willing to answer any question about what the procedure entails. We went into my operation with a very low probability of being able to walk out of surgery with both of my kidneys in tact. Dr. Landman performed nothing short of a miracle as he was able to remove the cancer and save my kidney, which I am truly thankful to have him as my doctor.
Dr. Landman is an excellent doctor. He has been very professional in helping me through my kidney cancer diagnosis, surgery and recovery. His bedside manner is empathic and genuine. He has taken time to answer questions and talk to me as if I have been his friend for years. Dr. Landman continues to monitor a few risks I'm still dealing with. We have discussed scenarios and available options. I trust him implicitly.
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Landman, in less than on hour he performed a kidney stone removal surgery as an outpatient at UCI, I was highly recommended to him after suffering 2 botched surgeries and many days interned in two other hospitals.I thank Dr. Landman for everything he has done for me He is a wonderful, caring doctor who was always friendly and comforting to his patients. He truly make a difference in the medical field with his amazing staff.
One the best doctor I have ever met, kind, compassionate, his knowledge and communication is amazing.........I am very glad to be able to meet Dr, Landman.......Thank you very much for everything......
The wait was about 5 minutes if that, and was politely greeted and shown to a room. Also another 5 minutes or less wait and was treated with friendliness and respect. They bent over backwards to get us the help we needed and everything has gone well. We know and feel reassured the best care possible.
Skilled knowledgeable kidney surgeon. Good personality with ability to discuss technical details at the patient level.
I felt that the facility was very nice and that I saw Dr. Landman very promptly once I arrived at the facility. I thought that Dr. Landman's examination was thorough and that he clearly presented his opinion on my condition to me.
Dr. Landman and his staff are nothing short of professional. Parking was easy and the building very easy to find.
