I went to Dr. Brawner for sinus problems. He told me "what we do next is some sinus surgery - go in, blow up balloons and cut out some tissue..." - The only risk, he said, was that we would puncture the brain cavity. He didn't really ask if I wanted to do it. We did the surgery and I lost 90% of my sense of smell and taste afterword. That risk was never explained to me, and I may not have done it, had it been explained differently to me. The sinus problem continued - the surgery really didn't help. I got my records and his notes says he explained this risk to me - he did not. He talks down to his patients, calling the procedure "blowing up a balloon" for a balloon sinoplasty, and calling the endoscope a "GPS thing" - it is such a loss in life to have almost no sense of taste and smell. I eventually cured my problem holistically, with diet and stress reduction.
