Patient Comments (2)
in Massapequa, NY |
I was sent to Dr.Turoff at the behest of worker's compensation for a second opinion concerning one or more hernias.Dr.Turoff claimed I had a small ventral hernia,which he advised to leave alone.I was quickly put in my place when I suggested otherwise.Fortunately,a court approved MRI confirmed that I do indeed have 3 hernias,2 inguinal and 1 ventral.As an added insult,the doctor had a young lady of his staff accompany him in the office while I was being examined,figure that one out,I couldn't.
