Went for a neck surgery consult and was told he would not do the surgery due to my life expectancy. I am currently going through chemo treatment for cancer that my team of oncologists have told me is treatable. Dr. Samuelson then tells me I have 6 months to live. Not sure why he would say such a terrible thing to a person - didn't know he was also an oncologist. Waited 25 minutes to get into my appointment as well. My doctors were informed and saw his notes in my chart and were appalled.
