What People Say About Dr. Christopher Carey, MD
Reply
I can not recommend Dr. Chris Carey. Following routine surgery I developed a serious infection that required almost two weeks of hospitalization during which I had massive antibiotics, blood transfusions, oxygen, drains and a great deal of pain for many months. He disregarded early signs of infection which allowed it to progress to life threatening proportions. He has yet to admit the surgery he performed was the obvious cause of my illness.
