Patient Comments (4)
Dr.B came off as a nice, caring doctor at first. After my first brain surgery with him (that went horribly wrong), he didn't fix the problem in time and left me with eye damage. He failed to mention this complication was possible. I ended up with an infection of my shunt &he didn't remove it like any NS should do. This ended up causing me severe problems. I had to have two other surgeries as a result of him not taking me seriously& removal of the shunt by a different NS. Would never recommend!
