Patient Comments (1)
in Des Moines, IA |
Wouldn't let him operate on my dog. He does not care one bit about his patients. He won't let the anesthesiologist do nerve blocks for pain control because he doesn't want to wait the 5 minutes. My son was in such horrible pain after a shoulder surgery that could have easily been prevented with a nerve block. Should not be allowed to practice medicine.
