in Saratoga Springs, NY |
I was assigned Dr. DeFrancisco by Saratoga Hospital Emergency Room two years ago for chest pain and stomach pain, I can't tell you the amount of visits to him or the emergency room but as of today I am still suffering in pain and Dr. DeFrancisco's answer to me is "it's in your head", this I was told as I was down 30 lbs from no appetite and pain, I asked if he thought I could have Cancer? "NO" his response, well at the age of 53 I have cancer, and Dr. DeFrancisco will take my call. KARMA!
