This doctor performed surgery on my father, an aortic valve replacement and as soon as my father had complications the doctor disappeared, only saw my father briefly,once after the surgery....my father contracted an infection (probably from the surgery about 2 days after and was septic twice after that and died after being in the hospital for 4 months....the doctor actually lied to us about what the cause may be regarding the infection....denied CHF, which my father never had before the surgery....horrible experience. Not sure either why he is suddenly in our area from the MD area?
