Dr. Ugoretz is one of the most callous, defeatist doctors I've ever had the misfortune of meeting. When my mother most needed a specialist who'd offer her some measure of comfort, he withheld even a modicum of kindness. He had no treatment options for her & encouraged not even a shred of hope. She was 68 & only 3 days earlier, had not even a suspicion of anything as sinister as an inoperable brain lesion. He fought me when I proposed the very promising, now gold standard, gamma knife. Avoid.
