    Horrible Guy. Almost killed my son. Gave wrong instructions post surgery. Huge infection as a result and urgent care required while traveling in California. Completely unresponsive. Will file complaint with medical board. Not interested in a suit but hope his license is revoked or formal reprimand is given.
