Westminster, CA |
Arrogant Doctor. My dad died after his 2nd lung surgery on my dad for same small cancer. 1st surgery was at 86 years old and a wedge was done. 2nd Surgery was at 88 years old. The 2nd time he took the whole lobe of the lung. Never told us he would have him under anesthesia for 5 hours. We thought he died during surgery. After that his brain never recovered. By the way he sent him home in 24 hours with a chest tube, catheter, and a pain pump at 88 years old to get to the bathroom by himself.
