Excellent choice for hemorroidectomy.
Thank you for your kind response. Hemorrhoids can be tough. We are glad that you are well.
I had Hemmorhoids that had been bleeding for quite some time so my doctor referred me to Dr. Bossart. I wished I had never gone! He took care of the Hemmorhoids but without ANY anesthetic of any kind & I was in terrible pain! I told him I was about to pass out but he kept going. After he finished I had to wait to walk until I had myself back under control, as I kept feeling like I was going to pass out & crying. I cried the whole way home, 100 miles away! Worst experience ever!!
Thank you for your feedback, we have noted your response. We want all of our patients to have the best possible care. Hemorrhoids are extremely painful, before and immediately after treatment, but all procedures receive appropriate anesthesia. We hope that we may be able to win your favor again, as your experience is not indicative of our patient care standards. Please call our office if there is something we can do.
