    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Bad surgeon

Dr. Livingston removed my sigmoid colon in 2004 and during this process, he made several mistakes, which has made me sick for years. I just had my gallbladder removed and during that surgery, the doctor had to make certain repairs that were made by Dr. John Livingston. He is a bad surgeon and I hope no one uses him in the future
