Did not perform the surgery that he said he would resulting in an unsuccessful procedure, (didn't even know what day of the week it was following the surgery) then for follow up totally blew everything off and didn't even check anything out. Access still doesn't work and now can't get anyone to help with next steps. Now office is being rude and we can't get any follow up. Two surgeries later, 5 months have gone by and we can't get a resolution.
