Went to Dr. Aaron March 2020 for trigger finger he gave me an injection for trigger finger. Three weeks later my hand swelled and rash terrible pain ER said cellulitis see hand surgeon went back to Aaron at St. Francis he opened a disposable packet of antibiotic cream smeared it on the rash with the package covering and put a bandaid in it. Will never go back to him. Went to primary MD and second opinion from a different hand surgeon.

I'll never go to him again. I went to Dr. Aron on January 18th of 2019 with a trigger finger. Dr. Aron had me place my hand upside down on a hard surface and jabbed a syringe into my hand where the finger meets the hand. I screamed in pain. He didn't say anything and left the room. Over nine months later and it still hurts where the needle hit the bone. Plus I still have the trigger finger.
