Patient Comments (1)
in Chicago, IL |
Dr. Kotler determined I needed surgery to correct a nasal obstruction. 2 days bfore surgery his MA called to cancel surgery bcause I have a hereditary neuropathy which isn't currently affecting my legs. He sent me bck to my PCP to get referral to see anesthesiologists for clearance. My PCP thought this was ridiculous & sent fax to Dr.Kotler with Ok. He kept telling his rude MA to tell me I need to see anesthesiologists. After my wife called MA she disclosed Dr wasn't doing surgery.Very unethical
