St Louis, MO |
Dr. Poddar proved to be one of those doctors who like to experiment with theirs patients. He convinced my mother to go through her chemo treatments even though he saw that she wasn't tolerating it. She almost died after her 4th treatment but he decided to give her another one. That one was even worse, so he finally sent her to hospice. He knew she was dying and there was nothing that could save her. I wish he left her alone instead of putting her through that nightmare. No campiassion at all!!
