Patient Comments (1)
San Jose, CA |
Incompetent, dangerous, and arrogant. My mother was in his care during rehab for a short time. He removed all fluid restrictions and reduced blood tests to once a week - leading to severe hyponatremia. He didn't even check her medical records, to know that she'd been under the care of a urologist while in hospital. He brought other people into her room during rounds, without introducing them or explaining their presence. Worse, he retaliated against my mother when I expressed concerns.
