I saw Dr. Kothari to have a very small cyst removed on my back. It turned into a gaping wound that did not close for over 2 months. The worst part was that he gave no post op care. He took the stitches out after 2 weeks and it immediately opened up in the office and he actually tried to squeeze it back together and then basically left and said good luck. I was very fortunate that my mother is a nurse and she did all of my wound changes. When presented with all of these issues he did not feel it "necessary" to see me again or provide wound care. DO NOT LET HIM TOUCH YOU!
