Patient Comments (1)
I was scheduled to have Dr. Farrugia do an angioplasty. Before the procedure I explicitly told Dr. Farrugia that I did not want to be stented unless it was a medical emergency. Despite my instructions, Dr. Farrugia unsuccessfully attempted to stent me 5 times! He claims it was a medical emergency and wanted to try again. That was 18 months ago - hardly an emergency. I have decided to treat my condition medically but my health has significantly deteriorated since Dr. Farrugia's attempted stenting
