in shawneetown il |
my husband had an appointment with him for lung cancer in left lung. this doctor was trying to tell him that he hadcancer in both lungs, lymph node, broc. tubes . We tried explaining to him that 3 other docters said if was in left lung only and had a cd to verify it. He said he didn't know how to read the Cd and that the other doctors didn't know what they were talking about. when we told him we was goimng to get another opion because he wanted my husband to get a colonostomy done he got mad.
