in Spring Hill, FL |
This urologist may not understand English, or should not practice on humans. My father was back and forth with a Foley cath, ( due to Espiritus incompetence) and at his next to last visit, Espiritu and his girl laughed at my dad, telling him to come back after HHC pulled the catheter. Who sneers...more
