Patient Comments (1)
in Dallas, TX |
Dr. Zurita filled in for another doctor who was on vacation while my father was hospitalized at MD Anderson receiving radiation therapy. Dr. Zurita was rude, stated that he was too busy to see my father every day, and told my mother that the only reason my father was in the hospital was because she couldn't take care of him at home. He thoroughly intimidated my 84-year-old mother, reducing her to tears. Totally unprofessional and completely lacking in compassion.
