He did my husbands eye surgery and treated him terribly. He was late for the surgery and we have to go see another speacialist because we think he did something wrong. He can't see out of his eye straight now. He left my husband in sever pain. The nurses couldn't get ahold of him to get him correct pain Meds. He told my husband and myself he should not be in any pain before or after surgery. Wouldn't believe my husband was in severe pain. Day after his surgery he pushed hard on his face.

I had breast augmentation done and was told I would be given 150 "beauty points" to use in the spa. Ended up having another surgery, therefore getting more "beauty points". Went to use beauty points, was told that I only had 70 beauty points. Each point is worth $1. Talked to them 2 times, nobody can figure it out. I told them to forget it, I will go elsewhere.

I am a breast cancer survivor that had a left sided mastectomy. I went to him for reconstruction. When I woke up after the surgery it looked as if nothing had changed. I asked him where the implant was, he told me that sometimes it takes a few weeks to fall into place . Well it never fell into place and he told me to lose some weight and I would be able to tell it was there. Then when I refused to pay the remainder of the bill I owed he sent me to coolections.

This Doctor has left me disfigured. Simple augmentation that has led to 5 additional surgeries due to his negligence. And I will never be the same. Do your research, do not choose this doctor!!!!!
