I was in the hospital, with no assigned surgeon. I saw interns, GP's, and Gastro team. The one person that seemed to take the lead was Dr. Wagner. He did not feel surgery was necessary at the time and he was spot on. He may not be a hand holding, kleenex box kind of Doctor, but he was kind, truthful and took great care of me. When everyone was pitching very serious outcomes at me (very scary), Dr. Wagner was the quiet in the storm and was the best at explaining my condition and his reasons for a different approach to my treatment. This is a great, SMART Doctor!
I needed to get a biopsy. The Doctor anesthetized me and didn't wait for the injection to take effect. I told doctor I could feel the pain of him cutting into my skin but he did not stop. Afterwards, he stitched the area but did not tell me how to take care of the stitches so that it wouldn't get infected. He did not explain the procedures which doctors are required to do by law. It was obvious that he only cared about getting me out as soon as possible so he could go on with his day. He clearly didn't care about me.
