There are better in R.I.

Waited 3 hours in pre,-op, never talked to me after operation, slope to my wife. Charpentier sent a assistant to speak to me after surgery. Waited over 45 minutes for a post -op exam in waiting, than 15 minutes in exam room. He spent 3 to 5 minutes with me for an exam. Did not even walk me back to his secretary was ahead of me and gone to the patitient when I reached his secretary. There are better in R.I. or near by Mass.

Get a second opinion before doing surgery with him. He was very confident and optimistic going into my father's surgery to remove a tumor only to come out and tell us it was no longer operable. He gave my father an 80% chance of getting this tumor out before going into surgery.He washed his hands of us after that. Gave us no hope or direction. He completely let us down. My father died 6 days later due to septic shock after surgery with Dr. Charpentier.
