Patient Comments (1)
in Stafford, TX |
This was the most horrible experience I ever had. Kept telling him I could feel him cutting me. He never introduced himself, and after I screamed through the whole project, the staff just left the room. He tried to put more anesthesia in but it ended up on my hand and running down my leg. I'm reporting him to the AM A and considering a law suit.
