Sorry excuse for a doctor

This man turned a colonoscopy into a near death experience for my mother. He should not be allowed around another human being in his life. Thank God we found another surgeon to fix the foul up he caused to her. A seventy year old woman is still fighting for her life from the damage he caused. She has spent over a month in the intensive care unit and we have nearly list her several times. After puncturing her bowel, he left her on the table for an hour and half with feces running into her abdomen. I feel like he intentionally harmed her because he was informed we had a family surgeon and his God complex and arrogance caused him to harm her in the most horrible way. Please never allow this monster to touch anyone you love.
