We were referred to Dr. Andrews by our primary care physician for an emergency. My husband had a large growth. Dr, Andrews was very professional and reassuring and at first we appreciated the conservative approach he seemed to take. The growth quickly changed in size, shape and consistency - but when we called back we were told he was off. We did not get a follow up call for 4 days. It was frightening! We found another surgeon -whose office actually cared. He NEEDS NEW STAFF!!!!!!!
