UBowie MD |
I was sent to this doctor by my Urologist. I saw him and told me , I need to remove my gall-stone. My primarycare physician , cardiologist, both told me it is non-obstracting, no pain , so not to go for surgery. Dr Vijian told complication might arise later on. I decided not to go for surgery. i got 4 reminder to pay for office visit which was paid before doctor saw me. Today, I asked what the bill about. The office caller was not sure. She called back and apologized for the mistake.never again.

He didn't even come to the hospital the last week I was in to remove the staples. Major surgery was done. 43 days in the hospital. 1 year later I now have to have another because I have a huge abdominal hernia from the surgery. Never seeing him again. EVER!!!
