Knoxville, TN |
While his surgical skills are excellent, I would not recommend him at least for breast reconstruction after mastectomy. He did not provide sufficient information prior to the surgeries about what could be accomplished and what results should be expected. This led to dissatisfaction on my part such that I sought a second opinion of the results (as he recommended I do). After finding out I had done so, he dismissed me from his practice and I had to find another surgeon to handle my follow up.

We told him there was something wrong from the first post on appointment,and he would look at her and say everything looks fine to me. Even when she had a staff infection he still said everything looks fine to me. Well 3 months later he finally decided he needed to go back in and see why she wasn't healing. Finally we think. Then we get to the hospital and they say you have to pay $275.00 before you can u have the surgery. We don't have the money for this. It's his screw up he needs to pay it.
