Patient Comments (1)
Rhode Island |
My terminally ill father was under Dr. Wittels care when he suffered an injury on his last trip to Florida. The doctors and staff there were very good upon communicating his condition to the doctor here in RI. Upon getting home, he saw the doctor, who had not bothered to look at the information he had received, blaming it on the nurses. This resulted in my father suffering unnecessarily through a month of blood poisoning, because the doctor couldn't bother to review his info.
