This surgeon has poor follow through left a tumor that he was aware of during my first surgery and rescheduled my second surgery multiple timesdie to being on vacation. This surgeon also provided little information and feedback and needed to be prompted to look at my incision from my surgery. I don't trust that he provided the best care that one should have.
