Thank you Dr. Mallo for saving my life. Over 6 days, I had 3 nurse consults by phone and was seen by an Urgent Care nurse. Despite severe abdominal pain/vomiting, all said I had a GI tract bug. In 10 min, Dr. Mallo diagnosed a ruptured appendix and told me to go directly to the ER. Later, the surgeon said one more day and I might have died. Lessons learned: (1) Dr. Mallo is a superb physician, (2) don’t delay if you have a debilitating gastro-intestinal problem, and (3) nurses are not doctors.
