Patient Comments (1)
in New Orleans, LA |
I had osteomyelitis when I was 10. Dr Clohisy did the biopsy in the wrong place and totally missed the infection. He ignored it when the radiologist pointed out a problem and when the lab said the biopsy wasn't done right. I have had to see many other drs. I now have chronic osteomyelitis I have been in pain for eleven years. I have had three surgeries so far, been in a wheelchair and had a pic line. My hips are now ruined. None of this would have happened if he had made the right diagnosis.
