Patient Comments (1)
Rockport, TX |
Dr. Smith was rude. Each time I tried to explain my concerns he would interrupt me. He did major surgery on me. Before surgery he tested me for diabetes. My levels were extremely high and after surgery he released me without antibiotics. I ended up with a major infection in my stomach and had to have emergency surgery somewhere else of course. I will never let this surgeon touch me again. His smart mouth and rude comments were the icing on the cake.
