Best people doctor I have ever met and so is his PA Matt
in Phoenix, AZ |
Years ago, Dr. Y. Did a repair on my left knee that left me crippled. He did an "experimental" surgery that went horribly wrong and of course failed to admit he screwed up. He grew some of my own cartilage in a lab and then transplanted it back into my knee and it was an epic failure. Thirteen years later, I'm still disabled. He was arrogant and failed to admit a mistake because he wanted to succeed in the new surgery technique. That way he could earn more money for a new procedure.
