Patient Comments (1)
in Syracuse, NY |
May15 my son was diagnosed w ALL. July15 he spent 6 weeks in the PICU because he was plagued with continuing port infections. Dr. Sima was callous and immature while telling me that she didnt think my son would survive. She made a statement "I tell GK (who was his attending MD) that she just has to say it like it is". She pointed a finger at the MDs in the room and put them on the spot to say whether my son was going to survive. Each shook their head no 15 months later my son is home ALIVE
