Patient Comments (3)
Rome, GA |
Can't even put one star. Nasty and berating doctor. No chairside manner.
in Rome, GA |
Was new to Rome, fell & broke thumb, was assigned to Dr. K. He did a great job with a very awkward break. Randomly met of patients of his around town and they had nothing but praise for him too.
in La Fayette, GA |
First his nurse examined me and told me that my problem didn't need anything done to it. I had to insist that I wanted the cyst removed before I even got to see the doctor. The doctor himself was cold and acted like he had better things to do than see a patient. He ended up draining it as fast as humanly possible and then told me I was done. No aftercare instructions like Don't use the wrist for a few days nothing. Two months later the cyst is completely refilled and hurts worse than before.
