Patient Comments (1)
in Ninety Six, SC |
I was intubated and subsequently had a tracheostomy by his partner, Dr. Tarisidas in Jan. 2014. It was a long term ICU stay and Rehabilitation period. I pulled out my trach during my sleep in April. So about 3 weeks later, I met Dr Rust when he saved my life. He emergently replaced the trach. I followed up in his office. He is upbeat, but tells u as it is. He in one visit told me more about my illness than I had been told in months. I respect him more than most physicians I know. From the Nurse.
