In the last 9 years I have asked several Dr.'s have you ever heard of the plug and patch method for a hernia. They all look at me like I'm nuts. This man did that hernia repair on me and for the last 9 years I have not been able to lift more than 20#. I have permanent nerve damage from this method. I would never ever let a family member ever go to this man.
