He was my mom's doctor. After months in the hospital, he said there was nothing he could do to help her, but refused to release her from the hospital so she could die at home as she wanted . We finally got her release "against doctor's advice". She went home to her own room, her own beautiful back yard, and loads of visitors, and had a very peaceful death a week later, after telling the three of us kids how much she appreciated us getting her home. He made it hard on us at a very difficult time.
