Patient Comments (1)
in Mannington, WV |
He misdiagnosed me and claimed I had cancer which was not true. He removed both breasts and left me in such dire shape, I had to have another physician do the surgery over to remove lumps of left over skin which prohibited putting my arms down to my side. He has no bedside manners. He is not a doctor. He is a butcher. Please do not go to him if you value your body.
