Patient Comments (1)
in Belleville, IL |
It was the worst experience of my entire life. I told him I was sick after surgery and he said I needed a psychiatrist!! The very next day, 8 weeks after surgery, I ended up at the ER and they found that my ureters had ruptured and there was over 5000 mL of urine in my abdomen. He almost killed me!!!
