Dr Wade to me is a wolf in sheep's clothing, he did surgery on me years ago, told me I needed a stint in my uretha, never said anything about it being temporary. Long story short there is a paper trail showing he put in a stint bit he didn't. May be a good surgeon to some but not me. Had a cat scan done told me everything looked fine, I'm at 20 percent kidney function with cysts and stones. He is a liar and a theif. I had great insurance at that time. So basically all he did was exploration surgery and lied about it. My name is Reba Patton look it up Dr Wade.
