Patient Comments (1)
in LEXINGTON, KY |
Told me the side effects I was having to ACTH chemo were in my head. Continued to ignore them even after I was hospitalized for them. I broke out, had sores in my mouth, had ringing in my ears and felt like I was dying. He didn't care. With all my complications, he tried to pass me off to a PA. When my husband and I pulled my medical records, we found that this doctor had falsified my medical records. Find someone who cares.
