in Hendersonville, NC |
This Dr. and the team at Mission Hospital in Asheville NC saved my life two years ago. He conducted surgery for a ruptured aneurysm. I am blessed to have had his services that day.
in Campobello, SC |
5 weeks for an appointment, 2 hours wait time for at least 3 out of 6 visits. Confusing discussion over how to proceed. An abrupt cancellation of an appointment following my 3rd MRI which was to determine whether to have surgery. I was advised to have surgery several times by his assistant and would expect to schedule a time with him to proceed time after time. Imagine my frustration when I last saw him and spent my time being scolded for missing an appointment which I did not miss. I canceled.
