    Patient Reviews (1)
    He replaced my gastric pacemaker when it died. The surgery went fine but as far as after care, it was horrible! He cut open my stomach but expected just toradal to be enough pain meds afterward and no script for my zofran. Was told that he doesn't do that. Ended up in er hrs after surgery for excruciating pain and was made to feel like I was a drug seeker. Also his staff ordered me medicine that I'm allergic to,that causes seizures, because they never looked at chart or arm band. Horrible care
