    Patient Comments (1)
    in Corona, CA |
    Post-op care is poor to say the least. Dietician was directed by doctor to follow-up several times and no one did. After three months I would still be on liquids technically. Pain (ripping/tearing sensation) in one spot developed 5-6 weeks post-op and was reported to follow-up MD who disregarded the new pain. Now 3 mo post-op and I have to hold my abdomen to get up from a chair. Left e-mail for Dr Sal. Dr nor office called back! Beware of West Medical in CA. Bill is paid in full as well.
