Patient Comments (4)
From my point of view, Doesn't lesson to the patient, he does what ever makes it easier on him and not the patient, A routine surgery, has turned into a night mare for the patient. If he had of lessened in the begging to his patient, the patient wouldn't be in the shape they are in, one week after their surgery. I was also told at the front desk when I was going to pay the bill, that they don't take checks.
