Residents do the work. Hardly ever saw doctor. Wonder if he did my surgery. Said they wouldn’t harvest from left leg for bypass and then they did. Very difficult to make contact. And still hasn’t called my podiatrist since December to advise where he cut and tied so podiatrist can remove spurs from foot. Had great hopes of solving a problem but they are still there. Also is the hospital for prisoners that you may be laying next to in pre op, surgery, er, etc making stress levels high

Never sees the patient, but delegates to resident. Impossible to contact and office phone is unpublished, appointments are made through a general clinic with very poor staff.
