in THE VILLAGES, FL |
AFTER A CT SCAN AT THE VILLAGES HOSP. DR. BRANCH DID A LARYNGOSCOPY, AND THEN MISDIAGNOSED MY WIFES CONDITION AS STAGE FOUR CANCER NEEDING SURGERY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE INCLUDING A TRACHEOTOMY, REMOVE THE CANCER AND VOCAL CORDS, AND VOICE BOX. WE CHOSE TO MOVE HER TO UFHEALTH SHANDS HOSPITAL IN GAINESVILLE, FL.. SURGEONS THERE, AFTER TAKING BIOPSIES, SAID WITHOUT THEM NO DR. SHOULD HAVE DIAGNOSED CANCER. IT WAS A BAD INFECTION. THIS AFTER CHILDREN FLEW AND DROVE TO THERE MOTHERS BEDSIDE.
I reviewed the facts and the medical records for this pleasant lady. Unfortunately, the complaint misrepresents the evidence which was available at the time. I never tell someone definitively they have cancer without a biopsy. Going to Shands was, in our opinion, the best option for her given the various possible diagnoses of her illness. As always, the best decisions are the ones made for the best interests of the patient. In her case, Shands was best. I wish her wellness.
