Are you a patient of Donald Waldrep, MD?
i started this process in Sacramento with D Dubb as I call him, last year. Due to a thyroid issue that he found during my pre-surgery tests, I had to postpone my surgery. In the process he closed his practice in Sacramento and decided to only work from his Thousand Oaks office. I followed him!! He's awesome and so worth the travel and expense.
