        Very poor bedside manners, typical southern cowboy... Removed 10 incision staples to early not giving instructions to keep mobility at a minimum resulting in reopening the incision and a second surgery to clean and close it. Of course he expects insurance and myself to pay for his poor judgment. Avoid this surgeon if not an emergency, which was my situation.
