Patient Comments (1)
Glendale, AZ |
He made mistake after mistake on my child and literally got away with her passing away from all the mistakes he made. This man stood by for three days as my daughter coded over and over again because he kinked her coronary artery during a mitral valve repair and caused other damage that could not be fixed. He was cold as ice. never said sorry or even acted like he cared. I have talked with many parents from AZ that had to take their child out of state for repairs after having him work on them.
