Dr. Drygas performed two low back surgery on my husband when he was in stage four cancer. How could he not have known he was full of cancer resulting in his passing within six months of horrible back pain due to the surgeries back to back and advanced cancer. I hope he is never allowed to touch another human being or even an animal.
