Patient Reviews (1)
in Denver, CO |
The simple joint fusion I had done with him failed and his mistake has destroyed my life!! The anesthesiologist seemed bewildered! I aspirated during surgery and got sever pneumonia, he could have killed me. I developed CRPS/RSD after the surgery due to nerve damage. I was too sick and on the verge of homelessness so I didn't have the resources to sue him. Going to this man for a simple surgery was the biggest mistake of my life. I'll be on my 3rd surgery this year to fix what he did to me.
