Paralyzed vocal cord

Dr. Sampath is very aggressive and told me I needed surgery and it was not a difficult procedure. Never told me about any risks. I now have a paralyzed vocal cord and needed another operation to help give me some voice. But will never be able to sustain a quality voice again! Never go to this hacker!

Frustrated

Had a spinal fusion done almost 7 months ago, I am still experiencing back pain. I have been passed off to a second PA now, I still have not seen doctor Sampath and I am in worst pain than before! The say everything is normal, put me on some muscle relaxers which only make me sleep the pain away and sent me on my way. The staff are rude especially the Hispanic girl who thinks she knows everything and talks to you like your beneath her. I would not recommend this Doctor or office to anyone, I am currently looking for a new doctor.
