Patient Comments (1)
in Wayne, NJ |
I have had experience with general anesthesia 3 times in the past. This doctor was the worst. Instead of administering iv medication to ward off post-surgical nausea, he placed a scopolamine patch into the back of my hair where it did absolutely no good. Not only was this the first time I awakened with a raw and raspy throat, but I also had to contend with nausea whenever i tried to sit up. I hope I don't need anymore surgery, but if I do there is no way I will allow this man near me.
