Patient Comments (2)
Nashville, TN |
This doctor is the cause of my head and neck cancer going from stage one to stage four over a period of 18 months. He did everything but perform a biopsy he should have performed at the first notice of a base of tongue tumor. I was a singer and lost all of my saliva glands and have suffered horrible side effects. I drink a gallon of water a day, because I cannot talk without saliva, so I have to take a drink of water before every sentence. You cannot imagine the pain I have endured.
Rocky Hill, CT |
Seems to know nothing about his field and takes nothing seriously, keeps talking about issues I don't even have everytime I go for an appointment, yet the issues I do have hr doesn't address at all.
