Dr. did not prepare me for surgery, did not take my other conditions into account, and the discharge instructions aggravated those conditions. He did not address my concerns after surgery, released me without addressing a pain caused during surgery, that sent me to the ER the next morning. When I expressed dissatisfaction, he suggested I find another doctor.
