YOU HAVE BEEN FOREWARNED--You can't turn back time.

I was misdiagnosed and an unnecessary surgery was performed by Dr. Chiu. Moreover to not correctly identifying my condition, he did not follow up post-op, such as necessary/required x-rays, which I constantly requested and was denied every time until I got a severe infection that required emergency revision causing me to almost die. If I begin to tell you my whole nightmare with Dr. Chiu, I know this space won't be enough.
