Patient Comments (2)
in Lake Helen |
Showed up for surgery, after no food or drink after midnight, and found out surgery was postpone. After surgery, showed up for follow-up, and found out Dr. was no longer there and could not see me that day and since I was going out of town, my follow up was postponed for several weeks. At followup, dr. said I was fine and they would contact me for next appt. Never heard from them again, except once, to make sure I paid my bill. Now, I'm having problems with the same knee that was operated on.

Dr. Valenzuela left his practice after operating on my husbands shoulder . Now my husband is left without a Doctor for the rest of his recovery. No e-mails, no warning, no nothing just up & left.
