One Star

Has a great interpersonal manner, but has staff do workups and so you don't get to meet him until you're on the gurney. Pre-surgical work-up was slipshod so that I was not aware of problems that would have had me reject this surgical option.Get a second opinion from a different hospital if you are considering transplant at Georgetown.

Interpersonal manner is caring, but he makes rapid decisions without sufficient information and lied to me after a surgery. I do not recommend this surgeon.
