Costly Mistake

He used an outdated CT scan to find his own reasons to perform surgery. Disregarded the needs/purpose of our primary physician. Cost my husband 3 painful days in the hospital only to find that he didn't remove what was needed and there was nothing to biopsy. Think twice before choosing this doctor.

Arrogant. Condescending. Sociopath.

He talks down to his patients. Snobby, callous disposition. I wouldnt refer him to manage the care of a pet rock.
