An inept and arrogant surgeon

A mediocre surgeon with conceited attitude and poor capabilities. Had misfortune to be treated by this doc for an appendix surgery during an emergency room admission. Multiple complications and visits required to remedy his poor workmanship. Absolutely not recommended.

Fabulous staff member, Frida. The doctor's bedside manner was not great. He ordered an important test, yet doid not call with the results as he said he would. I had to call the office far too many times requesting the test results. I was told my test results set on the top of a pile of papers on his desk.Sadly, he continuously put off calling me. This was unacceptable and I found that attitude to be arrogant.
