Patient Comments (1)
in Pahoa hi |
Dr Karu failed to look at test results of my father, for 2 months. Then panicked and ran him into surgery. His care was totally mismanaged. Fluid overload of 30 liters. Second surgery, kidney failure gut failure, mrsa. Too much to explain. He was hospitalized for over 2 months. Dr Kari and the surgeon disappeared from his care. Never saw them , dr Kari then calls my mother one year and a day after is death, to see how she was( statue of limitations expired ..right!) . lawyers wouldn't touch it
