Trusting Incompetant Doctors

I had two surgeries under this doctor. I am not going to say what type, although, they were major surgeries to the back. He fumbled on the first one, which failed. He took me through another surgery to fix the failed first surgery.The second surgery that was completed also failed.He refused to do anymore surguries on me.Keeping this short but to the point.He and his female blond sidekick told me that everyone had this sort of problem and to allow it to heal and then see what happened (this discussion was done over the phone).I had to go to a Spine Doctor in Clearwater area where they found that I had MERSA where my hardware was and so they cleaned out the Mersa and placed new hardware into my back along with the crooked screw Dr. Rajan Raj placed in my back.Now,,,,could you imagine what would have happened had I done what Dr. Rajan Raj and his female partner told me to do????GO Figure...Please folks check these doctors out good...Just because they are doctors does not mean that they are trustworthy!!!!!
