I was referred to Dr. Caron for a muscle biopsy to determine which inflammatory muscular dystrophy I have. There are 3, 2 are treatable and 1 does not respond to treatment. In our consultation he said that he would be taking 4 or 5 samples. 2 days before my surgery he had his office call to reschedule and rescheduled for a day that I knew was completely booked. So the day of surgery he only takes 1 sample. Other than confirming what we already knew, the results were inconclusive.
I'm sorry the results of your biopsy were inconclusive. I did everything possible to perform your procedure with care and precision in order to ensure that your specimen sample was uncompromised before it was sent to the pathologist for a diagnosis. It is standard practice for us to only take one sample. Please contact our clinic if you have any questions or concerns regarding the care you received from us.

Dr. Caron is one of the best doctors I have ever had. He explained every procedure I needed and followed up--even long after business hours. He has always been very patient and I have never seen him upset or in anything but a great mood. I would recommend him to any of my friends.

He seemed to just want to cut my spine to make money. Did not dictate notes of my consult nor cared not of my condition.

Did my surgery and went on vacation and I was left with a CSF lumbar drain for 19 days. He didn't communicate with other doctors so I was left possible lifelong migraines.
