Very little communication was told to do my own research. Some sensitive procedures were callously preformed.

I take this comment personally. I looked at/tried to remember what patient encounter may have stimulated it. I have not been successful. Patient care is my professional passion and my greatest responsibility. I apologize to any patient who may feel the way as this review suggests. It does not describe how I strive to take care of patients. I have wonderful staff that will make sure communicated complaints regarding care by my division and myself will be addressed amd responded to.
