DO NOT trust this doctor, change immediately, he doesn't know what he is doing. I end up in hospital in operation room because of him, I had to remove my colon. He is a horrible doctor!!!!!!!!!!!
in Lemont, IL |
Condescending attitude while answering questions regarding family member?s upcoming procedure. Unprofessional. When asked question regarding reasons surrounding father?s plan of care, was berated and questioned about my own level of intelligence. He then asked if I was questioning his intelligence. Projection. Need I say more.
