Patient Comments (1)
Sarasota, FL |
I had a minor office surgery with Dr. Kennar. Unfortunately when I went for follow up, she neglected to replace the steri-strips on the incision. 2 days later it came open. Her office was closed on Friday. Called on Monday. The wound had been open for 3 days,had healed over somewhat, and would no longer heal closed. I am left with a much bigger scar and a dent in the area. She took no responsibility and wanted to charge for the visit.
