Patient Comments (1)
in Opa Locka, FL |
Dr. Paixao is only interested in money. Not your welfare. If your kidney is working, even a little bit ; then do not go to her. She will make sure you are admitted for a long time and lose your kidney, so that you are admitted again for kidney transplant sometime, so that she would make more money.
