Dallas, TX |
He has a horrible bed side manner, and we made the the almost 2 hour drive to our appointment just to find out he was out of town when I had to call the office to find out why the door was locked! The secretary said she had called to let us know, but neither I nor my husband had any missed calls. And the other two patients that were there with appointments had not received any calls either!

The experience was horrible the doctor was not very informative during surgery. I would not recommend this doctor to any body. To me patient has had similar problems in general,where they feel something is wrong after surgery. Surgery is recovering not another surgery to Fux your problem.
