The Surgery was great, but the after care I was treated horrible and made to feel I didnt matter. . Would not listen to me when I tried to tell him something. Did not give Antibiotic or Pain Medciation for before and after surgery. I had a major infection and he wouldnt say anithing , but let it run its course and it will be ok. Really? I would have died if it had gone into my blood stream. Thank God I went somewhere else for after care. No I just have to go through the process of letting my body heal and then have reconstructive surgery down the road, not to metioned having to deal with dressing, antibiotics, Scipt meds, and changing dressing for the nex t6 to 8 weeks, not to mention the cost that I may have to face. I have already been doing dressing changes for over a month. It is so sad because it could have turned out alot better if he hadn't let his pride and ego get in the way.
Not too easy to deal with, the staffs are lacks of empathy.
