Just a number.
After a HORRIBLE visit.. VERY clinical office. Felt like I was in a Health Department. Put in a room, naked on the table for almost 45 minutes before Kumar came in. I smiled and said hi to his "nurse" she snared her nose and turned around. During the exam, Legs open facing the doorway, He tells nurse to call in 2 other people... OPENS THE DOOR and invited 2 other staff in the room to look at my conditions. Then he says "I like to educate my staff when these situations come up". After the exam, I am ushered to another room to "LEAVE MY REVIEW" and was told that I would receive a phone call within the week with my surgery date. 10 days later... no phone call. So I call the office and leave a message and wait for someone to call me back. Get a surgery date scheduled 4 MONTHS later. Fast forward 4 months, a weeks before my surgery I call the office, no answers. 2 days before surgery I finally get someone to call me back to tell me that my surgery was NEVER APPROVED.
