Patient Comments (5)

He performed my back surgery and then misdiagnosed that I had a blood clot. He said it was nerve pain. I ended up staying in ICU for 3 days and I am now on oxygen due to the damage from the blood clot. He almost cost me my life.. Please stay away from this dr if you want to stay alive.
