Patient Comments (1)
in Phoenix, AZ |
My son has TBI and he put in a baclofen pump in him to relax his spasticity. Pump line got cut by his vertebrate. My son was serious pain, it took Dr. Shetter one week to finally admit that the line was cut. At that time, he said it never happened and did not even order x ray to check. He also control the unit for the pump adjustment, no one dare to call him during weekend to help his patients. Again, my son has to suffer for days. Happened twice. He is a heartless, arrogant careless doc.
