Patient Comments (2)
in Thornton, CO |
Dr. Kamau was a physician when I was in the hospital at St. Anthony's N. He was a waste of time and money. He visited me twice while in the hospital for 3 days and both times had absolutely nothing to contribute. He wondered around my room for 5 minutes each time and asked how I was doing. He didn't answer any questions and just sort of made me feel uncomfortable. The worst part though was the $500 bill I received from him after the fact when I learned he was out of network. Avoid Dr. Kamau!
