My father suffered a hemorrhagic stroke on July 4th last year. After being diabetic for many years, the outlook was not good for recovery. We wanted to do what we thought what my dad would have wanted and proceeded with surgery after an infusion of vitamin k. Surgery was not performed till 8 that evening after the stroke happened before lunch that day. He was very vague and rude to myself and my family. After acting like he was doing us a favor and even going home before the surgery was performed, he never came back to to speak to us. I would not recommend him to anyone. Horrible bedside manner and just plain rude to a family that just wanted answers and recommendations as to what would be best.
Saw my mom visit lasted about 5 minutes. Stuck his head in the door and told her she didn't need him or did she. He told her that her injury was an old injury and she didn't need a surgery. He ask her if that was good or not good insinuating that she was just trying to get something. Told her she had osteoporosis and my mom asked him what was the best thing to do for that and he said don't know not field you need to go back to your family doctor. This man never even introduced himself when he stuck his head in the door. I would never recommend anyone to him. Some of these doctors think their God but boy arnt they going to have a big surprise one day!!!
