Patient Comments (2)
South Windsor, CT |
I was his patient for over 40 years.. he ignored the findings on my labs recently which were an indication of bladder cancer. If my wife did not persist I would not be alive today. Upon leaving his practice he was childish enough to state he had saved my life when I 1st stated going to him. He did not " find" my hemochromatosis.. I was referred to him to take care of it. I would not recommend him.. I did not owe him my life since he thinks he saved it the 1st time.
