Physician did not thoroughly explain procedure and the post-operative pain the patient would have Patients pain was not addressed by physician post-operatively Physician did not speak to family member post surgery to explain the patients prognosis Physician never spoke to family or patient during hospital stay Patient was seen by PA on day one who explained procedure and ordered pain medication There is a severe disconnect between the physician and the hospital staff - little or no communication
