Self-verified patient of Dr. Elie Schochet - Posted on May 10th, 2016
Worse experience ever from a doctor. had simple Hemorrhoid surgery an ended up up with massive infection after he lift some sort of tape of galls inside . Then after three calls to get back in the office and taking my own antibiotics he tested me for herpes without telling me and told me three times to make sure I called him on Monday no matter how I was even though I had an appt. on Wed. called back twice on Monday and received no call back from him . No herpes no way out but before I went in I researched the antibiotics and new what he had done but I played dumb till he told me what he had done. Also they never update my medication list that I brought into the office on first visit a month and a half before surgery and this was three weeks after surgery when I wanted to update my medication list after seeing my heart doctor. Got a new Doctor and That is my opinion
