Patient Comments (1)
in Elmendorf,Tx. |
Met this guy twice at mission trail baptist hospital. Seemed distant and arrogant. I was placed on NPO status for no real reason. All for a bowel obstruction. Have been NPO for over 2 weeks. This guy seems to enjoy making people feel as uncomfortable as possible, if they have a gastro. related problem. I had an amazing oncologist at BAMC, last year. This guy couldn't compare to her!
