Draper, UT |
This Dr operated on my spine because I had a benign tumor. I was referred to him by my oncologist prior to starting chemo for breast cancer. I was very pleased with this dr. My tumor was causing all kinds of problems for me that other doctors misdiagnosed. He is a hard dr to beat! Caring, professional, knowledgeable. He loves his patients and his job. He makes it very apparent.

Horrible, I'm sure he may be a talented doctor but the care my mom received was atrocious. She died while under his care and the UCSF neuro team. The last time we saw him was a couple days after the surgery, and he tells us her condition has nothing to do with his surgery. So basically, he came in to tell us it's not his fault! For days they were telling us that she checks out neurologically fine yet she died from malignant swelling in the brain. Does that sound fine to you? Get your lawyer doc!
