I find this patient's response Very disappointing and I am sorry that this patient Had such a bad experience. I have been practicing for almost 30 years and consider my life to be blessed because of the opportunity to practice in a specialty that I have loved and blessed with the ability to help thousands of people improve the quality of their lives. I am not sure what happened in our meeting but I do know that I would never say such a terrible thing as this patient claims that I said.
