He is very good at communication and caring. Due to having bad surgery experience in Los Angeles on knee replacement and reaction to my meds for Parkinson's, I was hesitant on going under again. He let it be my choice of not taking my meds. His surgery on me was to remove a 4 inch mass under left arm. NO pain or bleeding after release from St. Mary's. I felt I could go home after waking up. No additional reactions to my Parkinson's. Excellent surgeon.

He is very egotistical. Is not wiling to admit his mistakes,( and with me he made a few). He had to repeat the procedures, because he failed to use the clot busting drug on the balloon when the first angioplasty, so I had to endure a second procedure, on each leg. He had to do surgery in my groin area, to remove clots, and he never examined the incision after the surgery, resulting in an infection, which had to be treated at the Wound Care center.
