Hired Gun for the Health Insurance Company

This "doctor" is retired and works for the United Health Care. He simply denies claims to protect the company from paying. His comments appear to be scripted which is completely unethical.

Excellent, caring surgeon

He is one of the rare ones. Dedicated to his patients and their outcomes. Made himself available even on weekends and evenings. Every time I saw him, I came with a list of questions that he always took the time to answer. One of the Best!

HE decides what your results will be, not you!

I went to this dr 5 years ago for a reduction surgery and I am still unhappy with my results! I was VERY specific, and consistent, about what size I wanted. He always said that was fine, never giving any indication that I would get something other than my wishes, BUT when the surgery was over (and to this day) Iended up with two sizes larger than what I asked for. His response to my unhappiness was "well, when you loose weight they'll get smaller," how dare he! He didn't bother to remember that I had a high cardio hobby that I did 18hrs a week and had been doing for two years already without having lost any body shape or size previously, so why expect it in the future! And who was he to decide that I will just have to loose weight anyway! Also, I already knew that I don't loose weight in my chest -a decade before I had inexplicably lost 30 lbs without my chest reducing at all! I only had one shot at getting insurance to pay for the #[email protected]#* procedure (no one's going to approve a 2nd surgery) and he chose to waste it for me! I still dream about punching him because he had no right to decide for me what the results - permanent results -on my body should be!!!
