  • I chose Dr. Messenger because he's shown great care and knowledge since my daughter was in the hospital.
    My son came in with a sprained ankle, he was seen at Memorial Care in Fountain Valley and we were told to schedule an appointment with my son's pediatrician for folowup care. My sons normal doctor was unavailable and since he needed to be seen asap, I allowed the appointment with Dr. Messenger. He was up front that he couldn't do anything for him because we didn't bring in the xray and said that he couldn't help us further without them. He did not know how to put on an ankle brace that we ended up not taking and said that he would order us new xrays in the event we felt like we needed them in the next couple of days, but then when I looked at the paperwork it said that it was for that day only. We both left the office feeling like we wasted our time and my son missed out on important classes.

    Just was not a right fit overall, dr, was very aggressive and had a negative comment to everything I had to say in regards to my second child. Even wanted to argue about the size clothes my son is wearing as if I was lying that he is in 9 month and 12 month clothing when he was even wearing 12 months clothes, proceed to go on "well he big but he's average I don't see how he would be wearing that size more like 6 months" like okay but he is wearing them so.. What does it even matter. Already changed his DR.

    Overall experience was great. The Dr. Walked through all of my concerns and provided adequate information to ease these concerns.
    I didn't feel like the provider cared for my concerns.
