Dr. Chorba performed hernia repair surgery on me and axillary surgery at the same time. My experience with him was horrible. He prescribed me medication I was allergic to. I can understands when he prescribed it to me the first time he was not aware as I had never taken the medication before, however I reported to him that I had to go to the emergency room as my tongue had become swollen and my throat seemed to be closing up after taking it. This man prescribed the same medication the day of my surgery in a drop form. I’m glad the nurse at Swedish covenant was thorough enough to go over everything with me before she gave me the antibiotic drip. After surgery I experienced an infection from the surgery. I had to go to the emergency room near my home 3x for drainage and for new antibiotics as the ones Dr. Chorba prescribed were not helping the infection. He also butchered my underarms and my stomach area and I have very unsightly scars.
