Patient Comments (2)
Terre Haute, IN |
I truly believe she saved my husband's life due to her excellent surgical skills.
in Terre Haute, IN |
I would NOT recommend her. Her bedside manner is very poor. I returned to her office to have stitches removed a week after surgery. She rolled over to me as I sat on the table and she showed me an article on her phone and went on to tell me that I had a very very rare cancer and she had never seen this before and I would have to go to IU Cancer Center for more surgery. I was in shock and drove home alone. I had to make my own appt for the additional surgery. I never heard from her again.
