I had a miscarraige so Dr. Boateng had some tests done to see what was going on. Well the Doctors who ran the test said it looked like I have a Bicornuate uterus, we Dr. Boateng said they were wrong and everything was normal. Well a few years later i got pregnant with my son and I was immediately sent to a high Risk OBGYN because they noticed my uterus during my first ultra sound. Dr. Boatang gave me false information, and he never acted like he cared. He's a terrible doctor
