    I brought my mother to Dr. Karasik. Dr. Karasik made me cry when he said the procedure i wanted to do could kill her. Well, she passed this morning, February 10, 2016. Dr. Karasik to do ERCP on January 12, 2016 scheduled in December.I brought my mom for preliminary bloodwork,and on January 11th 4:30 pm, the procedure was cancelled b/c Hrtford Hospital did not have the stent.Talk about waiting last minute.ERCP never done and a cascading of health problems began.
