Baldwin, GA |
1 review 4/14/2017 1 review 4/14/2017 I am an Emory Graduate of 30years in the medical field for that long as well. This guy did me harm , the outpatient surgical center that he has ownership did me harm. Pain like no other I have experience in my entire lifetime, also infection due too not properly debriding the area after surgery. Revision of the surgery due to not properly positioning the mesh , mesh protrusion and serious infections due to wound not closing due to mesh protrusion.
