Patient Comments (2)

This man is a butcher! He has ZERO compassion and could care less about the pain and suffering his incompetence has caused. He performed a femoral artery bypass last year and it left me with horrible scars damaged nerves - constant pain - badly swolen ankle ( only AFTER the surgery) The surgical wound too MONTHS to heal - not just a few weeks. I had to take weeks of physical thearapy to learn how to walk again. The pain and suffering made open heart surgery look like bruised ankle. HORRIBLE
