Signed me up for opioid abuse watchlist w/o my knowledge. I do not take opioids. Did not consult with anaesthesiologist before surgery. Forged my signature on consent forms while under anaesthesia. Did not perform the right surgery!!!

The first time I met Dr. Gargano I felt an instant concetion. He calmly & softly explained my condition to me & told me exactly what procedure he was going to perform. It's very hard to find doctors that you like & trust, I put my trust in Dr. Gargano Nancy Prianti
