Patient Comments (1)
in Los Angeles, CA |
This doctor did multiple surgeries for my mother that ended in much suffering and subsequent death in Cedar Sinai Medical Center on 7/7/2015. This surgeon was so sure of the initial procedure beforehand and did not warn me as a high risk procedure. It was poorly prepared with a urologist surgeon who had only stayed during the first 20 minutes of a 2 hour surgery. There was mass bleeding from her bladder which took them 4 days to detect after I had to call to remind him! Absolutely dreadful!
