About Me

Care Philosophy

I'm a cardio thoracic surgeon at CHI St. Vincent. My dad was a surgeon and I watched him do an operation when I was 17 and after that I was hooked. I've worked in this hospital since I was 17 years old. I started off as an orderly in the recovery ...

I was very disappointed with Dr. Bauer. He was very nonchalant about my health. He has the God complex!! I don't think that he took the time to read all of the information that was forwarded to him by my cardiologist. He fat shamed me. I know my size I did not need to hear it multiple times from...Read More
