When I questioned my surgeon why I could not walk dr. hrynkiw came into my hospital room and threw my covers off my bed into the floor, told me to lift my leg, which I did. He slapped my leg down and said I told you to push your foot against my hand. He then turned and walked out. I did not even know who he was until I called the PCT to get my covers out of the floor. My back was broken in four places from an MVA two days earlier. I later found out I had spinal swelling

He also said it would probably take multiple surgeries to save my life. He did twice. I'm here due to his skill...
