in Clewiston, FL |
I WAS EXPEIENCING BLADDER RETENTION AND BLADDER SPASMS. I WAS REFERRED TO DR. LOPEZ THROUGH PALMS WEST HOSPITAL. I WAS IN EXCRUTIATING PAIN AND THE MEDICATION HE GAVE ME FOR PAIN RELIEF WAS NOT COVERED BY MY INSURANCE. WHEN THE PHARMACY CALLED HIM TO ASK FOR A DIFFERENT PRESCRIPTION HE SAID THERE WAS NOTHING ELSE AVAILABLE. AT MY SECOND APPOINTMENT, HE DID A BLADDER BIOPSY, NEVER NUMBED THE AREA, JUST WENT IN WITH A PAIR OF SCISSORS AND CUT PIECES OF MY BLADDER. I WAS SCREAMING IN PAIN.

I didn't even see him when he biopsied my prostate except for the follow-up when he gave me the results. Waited 20 days to tell me the results were positive for cancer. Could have told me a bit sooner.
in Royal Palm Beach |
It was ok but no a good experience, kind of careless and rushed
