30 of 41 days hospitalized. Immediately after open heart surgery, OTHER doctors noted my valve "repair" leaking worse. 2 ER REadmissions, numerous drainage required. Hospital Day 30 Dr. Proia SHOCKED to find me on EMS gurney being transported to another surgeon/hospital for REPEAT surgery. Daily notes shared to Proia--no response nor visit. 3 Med/ Legal Review Boards investigated & sent 'up the chain'...Surg. note, surgery #2 shows first surgery "abandoned" & repeated. NOT RECOMMENDED.
