in Los Osos, CA |
I was very happy with him and to have him follow me every 4 months with blood test for 4 years. He never tried to push treatments I did not want. Thanks Dr Kominsky

BLEW IT! In every sense of the word. After this debacle, I kindly suggest this Dr. go back to medical school or consider another career.
in Friday Harbor, WA |
I have had cancer twice and now have myelodysplastic syndrome caused by the radiation I received. Before being diagnosed with MDS Dr. Kominsky told me I was not high risk and he would just monitor me. He said I monitor people with worse blood counts than you. I was diagnosed by his boss when he was on vacation and now I am scheduled for a bone marrow transplant.
