Awake during breast surgery & Capsulotomy, September 28, 2009, 8:07 pm
Reviewer: cher06

Sanchez did breast surgery on me. 1 milligram of Sadol which is nothing, and he gave me 2 milligrams of Verced. Doing surgery for 2 hours and 40 minutes with that little amount of sedation was torture. I had to endure being stabbed on the side when he put in a drain, I felt it. Going under my chest muscles, I felt it. Burning my blood vessels, I felt it. Dr. Wells who was to be my advocate actually defended Dr. Sanchez who did this. Dr. Wells said this was a safe dosage. Did not support my battery of Insufficient Anesthetic. Sanchez the doctor who actually did this lied to me to get me to sign an authorization for surgery. Never did I imagine I would be wide awake and feeling it. Dr. Sanchez by design or by the way he practices he deliberately didn’t document things. Dr. Sanchez did a tummy tuck, removal of implants and removal of capsules, and hernia repair in four hours; all that takes a while to do. It would take in most cases 1 ½ hours, or something like that to get out most involved implants. You have to spend the time to be careful. Sanchez zoomed through those surgeries and didn’t do them as carefully as he should have and he took more breast tissue with the capsule. The implants he removed he put in larger ones and I ended up being the same breast size. When we tried to get the old implaints from pathology department at Queen of the Valley in Covina they went POOF - was told Sanchez took them. I now have to have breast reconstruction and have body flesh cut from my body to try and reconstruct my breasts, probably 3 surgeries. Involved breast reconstruction so the insurance medical experts say is nothing more than a $20,000 boob job.

Run away as fast as you can, September 21, 2009, 2:59 pm
Reviewer: RitaJohn

Sanchez has had many lawsuits. Check your local Superior Court. He runs a butcher shop and gets away with it. For me he let me bleed and didn't do anything to stop the bleeding. He tried to cover up an infection that was eating my stitches and kept removing & replacing stitches that ate up one of my nipples. When the implant was about to fall out he lied to me as to what surgery by local is to get me to sign an authorization for surgery. Tied me down to the surgery table, then performed breast surgery on me while I was wide awake and feeling it. The pain and terror was off the charts. He scolded me about not being cooperative because I had locked up all my chest muscles, so it was my fault. When bad stuff happens no other doctor wanted to help me and I was stuck with him. His wife is the office manager and if you ask for your medical file they clean it out. I had empty pages with dates - no notes. He doesn't document what he does and his wife reviews all files before you can have a copy of anything. Run - Run - Run.
