Beware...Be very afraid

As a surgeon goes, he sucks. He did a procedure on me and the results are disfiguring and this is my face. My eyes are asymmetric and no longer work properly. It cant be fixed with out major surgery. Again. Do your homework there are great surgeons out there that are truly ocular plastic surgeons. HE IS NOT!

One Star

In my opinion this doctor is only interested in the money as indicated by all the advertisements in his office. I'm surprised that he doesn't try to sell hot dogs in the waiting room. He has absolute not bedside manner and truly thinks who he is. I wouldn't let him operate on my dog.
