Saved my life

I had surgery performed by another doctor, and had complications. Not saying the other surgeon was bad, but he ignored my constant belly pain. Dr. Fanelli listened, considered me as a person, and did tests and X-rays, and then recommended scope surgery. I have been well since and think he is terrific. This was a couple years ago and I hear he took a new job, which is too bad for our community.

Did a colonoscopy, punched a hole in my intestine and spleen, then lied to cover, said my being sick was normal, for months. I think he was waiting for me to die so I couldn't do anything. This guy is dangerous and nasty to the nurses and other doctors who tried to help.
