      I had a terrible experience with Gesensway. I saw him on an urgent basis, feeling nauseated and feverish after I had had surgery a few weeks prior by one of his colleagues. He was arrogant and cocky telling me my nausea and fever were in my own head. He was extremely unprofessional. He proceeded to MISDIAGNOSE my INFECTION, calling it inflammation. Two days later my incision was running a river of pus followed by urgent surgery the next day to cleanse the infection. An Idiot with an attitude
