Patient Reviews (2)
in Austin, Texas |
Had emergency appendectomy first and then gall bladder removal a few months after.
in Austin, TX |
My father was diagnosed with cancer 6-18-16 and admitted to the hospital. Sankar was seen in the hospital 6-19 and was asked to see my dad by another Dr., but Sankar never showed. When the referring Dr found out the next day, he asked him again. Sankar came for the visit apparently ticked, then after my dad disagreed with the treatment plan, he told my dad You have stage 4 cancer, you're going to die anyway. First Dr. agreed this was totally unwarranted and got us another surgeon.
