Patient Comments (1)
Houston, TX |
Dr. Hwang gave me medical advice that, had I taken it, would have guaranteed my cancer progressing making surgery unnecessary. She stated multiple times that doing surgery for me was "controversial " even though other surgeons, my oncologist, and the treatment programs for Inflammatory Breast Cancer all indicate surgery is necessary within four weeks of last chemo. She was unprofessional, and her wanting to wait 3-6 months before surgery is reckless and a total disregard my safety.
