Patient Comments (1)
in Bayside, NY |
I had very bad experience at his office. I made an appt for my mom to see him but was actually assigned to another woman dr at his office. The dr examed my mom for a few minutes and told my mom to leave. I asked her why she believes my mom doesn't need the surgery, she said I was challenging her and she said there is no such machine existed to operate and my mom just has to live with the pain. We saw another surgeon and approved she was completely wrong. Very irresponsible and careless.
