Patient Comments (1)
Boston, MA |
Another doctor discovered I had a fibroid but I decided to go to Dr Orkin to get a second opinion. I brought test results and an ultrasound pic with me to the appointment. Dr Orkin almost laughed at my face and dismissed everything I brought saying that me being 29 y/o and healthy female it is impossible to have fibroids and this was probably just a muscle twist at the time of the ultrasound, he made me feel stupid and turned me away without even looking. (I actually indeed had 2 fibroids).
