Patient Comments (1)
in Bastrop, TX |
Please don't waste your time or money here. It took her office three weeks to call be back because the scheduler was out of the office. I told her of my family history of gallbladder disease. I had an upper and lower GI done. She came to the hospital late without my records. In recovery I noticed a large bruise on the side of my jaw. I refused to go back but was told by my Dr. She diagnosed me with IBS. Several months later I had my niccrotic Gall Bladder removed, Thanks to second doctor.
