Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael W Pettinelli - Posted on February 14th, 2019
I unfortunately had Dr. Pettinelli on 2 emergency room visits. He misdiagnosed my original cancer which didn't get correctly diagnosed for another 2 years resulting in years of surgeries and chemo after being found in it's late stages.
On my next experience he again misdiagnosed another situation 6 days after another cancer surgery. Had he phoned the surgeon a lot of pain and a second hospital stay could have been avoided. Unfortunately the hospital will not tell anyone who is on duty in the emergency room if you call and ask. You have to take what you get. If I ever need to go to the emergency room again I will drive an hour to another hospital. His attitude is uncaring and I can not trust his decisions.
