Pittsburgh, PA |
I have no gripes with Dr. Garrett, I only met him briefly before my emergency surgery. They gave me a female PA at my post op at the last minute. Ms. PA needs to GET A CLUE!! Get a clue about what "healthy" is, get a clue about not dismissing what people are telling you!! You are so ignorant it isn't even funny.... thanks, came home and cried my eyes out for half the day after seeing you!
