I needed to be screened prior to surgery. At my appointment he said that I needed two tests to be done but was ok for surgery. Then he claimed that not what he said. If this was thee case I would have gotten the tests schedule that day. Two days before the surgery I get a call saying that I was on hold till the test were done. The day before my major surgery I am getting a stress test done. I would not see this doctor as I don't trust him.
