I had surgery with him three years ago, and he did not fix my knee, (torn lateral meniscious) a simple surgery, and said, Oh, I could do it again????? We need to do a class action on him, to stop him from hurting others.

Horrible experience. Not counting the initial surgery I had 6 painful subsequent surgeries, all within approximately a year or so, all appear to be due to or helped created by mendel's inability to properly and timely diagnose. The pain I had and continue to have is horrible. Sad thing is I don't think there's anything anybody can do about it, to relieve my pain and the ongoing nightmare I believe mendel created.

Horrible experience. My pain remains unbearable. After the initial surgery, I needed 6 (that's SIX!!!) Additional surgeries, within approximately a year or so, that all appear to stem back to mendel's lack of proper diagnosis and prompt treatment. The pain and misery I have suffered and CONTINUE to suffer is terrible. It seems there is little or nothing I can do at this point. What a horrible nightmare I have to endure due to his inability to properly diagnose.

Why do i have to live with this pain, tuvi??!! Why day in and day out, because of what I think was your incompetency to properly treat my wound, did you leave me still in so much pain. It is unbearable. Why did you do this to me, tuvi!!??
