Dissatisfied,

I think his busy schedule and ego got in the way of my care. My slides were never sent to the designated pathologist. As a result I had more extensive surgery due to a misdiagnosis--this was never acknowleged or followed up by Dr. Bristow. He ignored important factors in my medical history, and I was administered contraindicated drug during and after surgery. He's personable and patient --at first--unless you disagree with him.
