Dr. King Says:

Three reviews listed here are from the same, unfortunate patient who did not have a surgical problem. I did my best to explain that he did not need my services but was clearly unable to reach an understanding with him.

My approach to patient interactions is to listen first and then explain my professional assessment as clearly and completely as possible. This can be a lengthy process - particularly in cases of complex cancer

Highly intelligent and gives thought to your particular situation. Explains your condition and offers alternatives if you request one. He listens to the patient.. Understanding and caring doctor. I have great confidence in him and his future.

This surgeon has no experience with spinal cord injuries, yet he has the audacity to lecture a quadriplegic how his autonomic dysreflexia is not an issue and not caused by pain.

Yet since he is a surgeon he believes he does not have to...more
