Excellent Surgeon

Followed up with me after my discharge. I was discharged Dec 23 and on Christmas Day he called me to make sure I was doing ok. He is very honest and does not mince words and this is something that is needed in healthcare.

very rude

He did not even give me a chance to finish telling him my immediate concerns, but instead cut me off, telling me I was wrong, I was paranoid, and was having an anxiety attack. Further testing revealed that my initial concerns were correct, but he never even apologized.

Cares, great doctor, straight forward

May appear to lead with a firm hand at times, but sometimes that is needed. Spent a significant amount of time with me and conveys caring and understanding without enabling. Focuses on patient care as opposed to the dollar.

poor patient care but hey I guess it's all about the money

extremely upset that after 3 yrs of surgeries by this dr. 2 of which he caused, that because insurance won't preapprove he won't operate again on the one surgery that will actually save a life. The lying by his staff about the reasoning behind this was uncalled for also.
