Patient Comments (1)

My experience with this Doctor following surgery has been so difficult for me. I wear dark glasses because I cannot look straight at people. I commute to work daily, and work with patients all day. He has never followed up with me. I suspect he knows he screwed up, botched surgery. When I called him about my difficulties following surgery, he commented, the dye has been cast. What kind of human would make such a statement. This guy scares me. Hope I can find a surgeon to correct this condition
