Dallas, Texas |
Seemed more concerned about getting me in and out. After surgery still aloof and states that symptoms I was having would just take time to heal. Six months later I returned to my general doctor and cancer tumors are still there. Now have a new surgeon and had to have another surgery. Lost a year of my life due to a bad choice in doctor. I would be very cautious. Waiting on pathology to come back now just hoping he did not cost me my life as well.

Very caring. Gave me his coat when room was freezing. Had to wait 1 hour and 15 minutes with no explanation until I asked. But he was very decisive and the team worked hard to make surgery happen quickly.

If there were more stars to give, I would give them to Dr. Rodrigues-Ruesga. He is a highly trained, highly intelligent doctor who did his residency at world-famous Mayo Clinic. Before I had colon resection surgery due to diverticulits this fall, I had several important Dallas doctors tell me that he was amazing in the operating room, and that there were few doctors who were in his category. Not only is he a fine surgeon,but he also really cares about his patients - a man of faith and integrity.
