Presumptuous and arrogant on my symptoms in which he IS NOT a specialist on. I would take my OB’s concern that got me there over his opinion, but even if he may have had the same one his demeanor I did not trust from the get go. I was right as the outcome from my referral left me still stressed and ridden with anxiety as he said no not anything your OB suspects, but could not give me an alternative. Yet biopsy the only 100% answer on is anything bad in my boob. Refused to do one unless I still have symptoms in 3 months... Mean if these get worse? My/OB Concern: Pain or tenderness, a persistent itching in breast especially around the nipple; many dont feel a lump, but an itch that wont go away; nipple color change to red or purplish; nipple starting to change inward, flatten, when it wasnt before; breast or nipple sore that wont seem to heal, bleeding from nipple or sore, 100% diagnosis for certain is biopsy

His office is very unorganized, surgery scheduler set up the surgery date before she got an approval for it. And then it was denied and she stated that they don’t do appeals to help to get surgeries approved, even after he is the one that stated the surgery was needed

I was admitted Tuesday night at 7pm for gallbladder removal. NPO. He was coming Wednesday morning to do the surgery. Wednesday morning, he's not there. Nurses say he's usually not in until 1 or later. Wednesday afternoon, not doing the surgery today, maybe tomorrow. It's now been 24 hours since I've had anything to eat or drink. Thursday morning, no surgery, even though I was on the schedule for 9:30am. He ended up not performing my surgery until almost 3pm Thursday afternoon.
