Bad doctor, infection at surgery site left untreated for 8 weeks

Positive Comments

He was prompt

Negative Comments

This man should not be practicing. He is not a good surgeon; too many infections. He does not respond when complications arise. He does not review latest test results before visiting patients. He is cold and uncaring, but most of all he fails at successful surgeries.

General Comments

Don't go to this doctor.

"Not by this doctor."
Spends Time with Patients
"Spent very little time, and did not communicate all the information needed."
Appropriate Follow-up
"Poor follow-up despite phone calls."
Stitches removed too early; surgery site became infected. Doctor did not respond to the infection for weeks, but finally did surgery to clean it out. He does not explain things well, and allows his staff to do everything except the surgery. He does not do appropriate tests, nor can he discuss the results. Requires an x-ray every time, eve when not necessary. Everything is scheduled around the doctor's convenience. Far below the standards expected.
