Patient Comments (2)
Matteson, IL |
Dr. Bales had the unfortunate experience in having to correct another surgeon's mistake. Dr. Bales was compassionate, straightforward and respectful. He understood my apprehension and treated me accordingly, putting me at ease and restoring some of the lost trust I had lost. Dr. Bales was very thorough in explaining the procedure and the expected outcome. The "over 45 minutes" response is due to the fact this was an urgent surgical procedure with no office visit.
