in Columbia,TN |
I ran out of spaces on my previous review. I was treated by Dr. Carter. I developed an infection and was transported to Vanderbilt WE via ambulance. They were stabilizing me for surgery. I was told that I would be in CCU and perhaps on a ventilator. I called Dr. Carter but could only speak with his nurse. I told her of my terrible infection and pending surgery. I asked her to let Dr. Carter know that I wouldn't make the follow up the next day because I was having surgery. Dr. Carter never called

He burned my face using a saw when doing TMJ surgery on me 24 years ago. He told me the skin stretched.even though I had a blistering, he said this. He was also very harsh in bedside manner
