Patient Comments (1)
in Margate Florida |
I am still outraged by the way this Surgeon treated my father, he was arrogant and unprofessional. He was demeaning and insulting. My father is intelligent, he is however shy and intimidated by doctors. This doctor assumed my father had dementia. My Dad quickly said no I don't have dementia. The doctor still treated my Dad like he was ignorant. My father had a port put into his arm for Dialysis, it's not viable but this doctor insists it is. He drew on my Dads arm in a very sloppy way.
