I saw Dr Dodge today, did not know what to expect, he was nothing like some of the reviews I read. He listens and spent time making sure all my questions were were answered before I left.

Worst Doctor I have ever Been to. Doesn't listen, and arrogant. Also administrated drugs to me that was on my hospital records as having bad reactions to.

Gordon misunderstands his hospitalization. Gordon's chart reported intolerances to more than 30 drugs including all the drugs we use to make people comfortable during procedures. My nursing team and I tried to make Gordon comfortable with very low doses of medications that we hoped he would be able to tolerate. Gordon's procedure was very long and he became increasingly uncomfortable. Our attempts to comfort Gordon resulting in him having a drug reaction. Damned if we do, damned if we don't.
