Dr. Caves helped solve my mystery pain!

Dr. Cae was the 6th doctor I saw for acute abdominal pain. While he is a bit quite and understaed, his medical knowledge, diagnosis accuracy, and treatment were all A++. I found him to be very efficient and polite. Granted, he is not a "cuddle" kind of doc, but I can easily give that up for great medical treatment!

Tore your esophogus? Oh well, sorry 'bout that.

Dr. Caves accidentally (I'm sure) tore my esophagus during an endoscopy. Repair surgery/recovery had me down for a month. Asked him to help with my direct costs of surgery, nothing more. He refused, saying his insurance company and his partners were against it since that would be an admission that a mistake had been made. Anyone can make a mistake, but they shouldn't smirk about it.
