Patient Comments (1)
in San Diego, CA |
This doctor operated on a lymph extraction on my skull and took cartilage without consent. The documents signed clearly stated the surgery would admit ONE lymph removal and without consent she removed a cluster of THREE. I am now very sick and would like everyone to know this doctor is not recommended for her daring experimentation on my skull i did not consent to. She made decisions to remove on the surgery floor without consulting my father to let him decide. She destroyed me with SLE!
