in La Jolla, CA |
While he was doing the microscopic camera up my bladder, he kept saying see: here its bad, here its normal, not normal, here normal, see? and panning the camera back & forth. Then I went to my GP and he says Kader's report states everything is normal. uh NO, that is not what he said DURING/while he was looking straight at it. Impossible to get remedied now. Cancer? Who knows! Switching to Scripps.
