Patient Comments (1)
Gainesville, FL |
Horrible experience with outpatient hernia surgery with this surgeon. My surgery was supposed to be out patient but ended up in the ICU for 4 days and another 5 days in the hospital recovering from internal blood loss and developed a blood clot in my right leg as well. Prior to the surgery he and his PA stated it was going to be "so easy". Look for someone else if you need hernia surgery. And to make matters worse, I need to have the right side redone. I would stay away from North Florida Regio
