Everyone is so professional and courteous. They treat me like I'm really important. That's a wonderful feeling. I'm looking in the mirror again after 16 years of not looking in the mirror. I feel pretty again. I didn't think that would be possible. I would do it 100 times over. They're the Best.
Columbus, OH |
Horrible experience with Dr Wakelin & practice. I contracted an infection, a result of tissue expander insertion surgery. Dr Wakelin (& partners) prescribed the same antibiotic despite continued recurrence (4x). After repeatedly requesting an infectious disease consult, I contacted my general surgeon for support. Still w/o resolution, I left this practice for OSU where 40% of my chest cavity was removed. After 9 surgeries, 3 hospital stays & 6 weeks on a pic line, happy to say I am now better.
