He did an inguinal hernia that I dudnt have, I had papers that were forged when I received reports from my records and requested several times the paper I filled out that he would put mesh over it. Well it turned out the medical record states it was an indirect hernia( which occurs in most baby boys at birth about 4% of females get this) I still continue to have stabbing pains from this as he continued to keep lying about the surgery.

Atwell performed a lumpectomy on me but didn't remove all of the tumor. Unfortunately I found this out on the followup visit with the oncologist. To make matters worse, Atwell initially lied to me saying he had gotten it all. If the oncologist hadn't told me, I would have been left in jeopardy. As it is, I am now facing another surgery by another surgeon to get what Atwell should have and claimed he had gotten in the first surgery. I found out the hard way, you can't trust this doctor. I absolutely would not recommend this guy.
