10 years ago he did an emergency operation on me. I have not been right since. He would not help me with follow up care. He did something wrong. I have had IBS type symptoms since he removed a benign polyp. Bouts of sudden diaherrah, gas, belching. I feel so gross and miserable. I was better off before he operated. When I had difficulties post op after hospital release, he refused to work with me to find a way to work around them to get care I should have. Because of my nightmare experience with Dr. Valerian, it has taken me 10 years to find the courage to follow-up and I still face it with dread and the fear that I'm making a big mistake. He is a horrible doctor. I can only hope he's improved with experience since he was so young when they stuck me with him in the ER but I still shudder at the memory of him.
