What People Say About Dr. Jonathan Kushner, MD
Reply Flag
Dr. Kushner perforated my father's esophagus during a Transesophageal Echocardiography on April 22, 2019. As a result, my father required emergency lifesaving surgery to repair his esophagus. It's been 19 days since the incident and my father is still in the hospital with a feeding tube. I question Dr. Kushner's judgement to attempt the procedure since it was attempted three days prior without success. This incident has caused much pain, anger and frustration for the entire family. My father is 80 years old and its the opinion of some in the medical field that this procedure is to risky to perform on someone of his age. The first Dr. that attempted the procedure noted that there was a blockage of some sort that prevented the device to pass down my father's esophagus. I believe arrogance led Kushner to make a second attempt of his own.
