I am in worse shape coming out of the surgery than when I went in. He ignored my DNR.

Extraordinarily personable physician; Dr. Curtis is very good at patient education and answering questions well. He made rounds early to see my husband at the hospital bedside before going off for a full day of surgery. During the surgery he regularly sent a nurse out to update me on progress every two hours. Great doctor!
