He was admitted to St Vincent on December 6,2020. Released on January 14,2021. This Dr and his associates operated on him at least 6 times removing over 50% of his muscle and other tissue damage by compartment syndrome. Apparently this Dr decided that my son was an addict and has refused to give him medication for the nerve damage and other pain from all of the surgeries. He was yelled at by an office person that he would have been there for a follow up appointment (when he wasn’t told he needed to do that) he was treated with disrespect.

Took excellent care of my father in law who suffered a hip fracture. Excellent bedside manner. He spent a lot of time talking to us post operatively answering our questions and discussing with us the procedure.
