Excellent choice for hemorroidectomy.
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!!
