Very rude, self centered, no bed side manner, arrogant. I don't care how good of a surgeon you are if you act like this and your team does not work with you than your not any good to us! You need to be polite listen to your patent and their family. I would never recommend you to any one!!!

I was referred to Dr. House for a liver resection. Good comfortable relationship. The surgery itself went fine, although my liver was much more damaged than thought. Surgery ended up being 8 vs 4 hours. I'm only alive because of his, the surgical team, and nursing staffs skills at Indiana...more
