Carrollton, GA |
It's taken years for me to be able to write this review. I almost lost my life as a result of an abdominoplasity done by this doctor. He never warned me of the possibility of staff infection. He is not a caring surgeon and does not listen to his patients. I look at the mess he made of my body everyday of my life and pray that it never happens to anyone else. Stay away from this doctor!
