This Dr. is mediocre, at best. On the day of surgery, my spouse was taken back to the pre-op area and I never saw him again until the surgery was over. When I asked the RN and the Anesthesiologist why the surgery had changed and why Dr Jamal never spoke to me, to address my concerns and question on either end of this process, I was told that he never talked to the spouses. And they didn't know why the procedure had changed. This is NOT valley standard for surgery. The Dr should always include the spouses, children or any significant other who has accompanied their patient to hospital or center. His complete disgruntled for me was unacceptable. It also took his scheduler almost 2 weeks to contact us and the office staff promised for days that they would call in prescriptions and they didn't. We had to get "ugly" before the finally did it. Don't use this man!!!
