Patient Comments (1)
in Lincoln, NE |
It's too bad. I was hoping this doctor could fix me as he has a great reputation as a surgeon. However like most doctors, he has an opinion. Everybody has one. But this guy, is an "opinion". The so called medical professionals have turned into judge, jury and sometimes executioner. Just one more "opinion" after another. Go elsewhere. Referred me back to a doctor that wants to give me a steroid shot. "Shot in the arm, shot in the head either way you end up dead!" Surgeon 10 / 10. Doc = 0
