wish i had read this before my appointment

It was really a disappointment. Although I guess it shouldn't matter, I don't really like him, plus my bad surgery experience.

The hospital should fire this guy

You need to be really careful when look for a doctor for this type of surgery. I have heard from more than one person that he gets sick of seeing "a bunch of fat ugly women". He wants to deal with attractive women because "this gets old". Not a good attitude.
