Very poor follow up after surgery. Office seems a bit disorganized. Get rid of the fish tank if you cannot keep it clean!!
Arnold, MO |
He did not explain things very well to me. I went in to have my gall bladder removed, which I was not nervous about at all. But I have pancreatitis and EPI (also a pancreas disease), and was having major pain and complications, but he sent me home anyway, where I continued to have complications and ended up going back. His bedside manner is terrible and I will make sure to steer clear of him for my next surgery!
