He was professional until he was told the surgery was not as successful as he had apparently hoped, at which time he became highly irritated and aggressive toward patient.

His staff is extremely rude. If they did not know the answer they will hang up on you. .I just want to see the dr. that performed my surgery which I am unable to do. Are they hiding that my spinal surgery was not performed?? Legal help is my next option!!
