This man saved my brothers life.can not stand to hear anything bad about this man. He can not be responsible for every single thing in any hospital he works in. God guides him I pray for him and his patients. If my brother would have died I know he had the best Dr. We are very lucky in Paducah Kentucky to have this wonderful talent and knowledge.

If you care about your love ones you will avoid this Doctor. He allowed my father to die on a holliday weekend on something that should not have been missed by a half way knowldedgeable physician and did not have the proper team with him. I only hope he experiences the same amount of pain we have daily due to his mistake.
