in East Palo Alto, CA |
Saw Dr. Freshman at Kaiser in Walnut Creek for total colectomy and ileoanal J-pouch reconstruction. I had a lot of complications but he handled them all well. This was 6 yrs ago and the reconstruction is still holding. Could not of had a better surgeon to communicate with or treat my condition.
