Patient Comments (2)
Houston, TX |
This doctor took 5 minutes at most to examine me and did not listen to what I told him was wrong with me. I felt rushed into a surgery that left me very sick and incapacitated in the hospital for several months. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!
Pasadena, TX |
A couple of weeks after my gallbladder removal I made an appointment because I was having some pain and I had a bump on my side. When he walked in the exam room he asked me to lie down and pull my shirt up. As soon as I pulled my shirt up I tried to show him where the pain and bump was. He moved my hand out of the way and all he did was push on my stomach and look at it. I told him no you have to look at it. He just put my shirt down and said there's no bump. I will never go back!
