In 2001, my sister and I went to Dr Romero to get breast implants. The doctor was really friendly and did a good job, so we recommended him to my mom. In 2002 my mom wanted a tummey tuck and liposuction. He was really nice and gained her trust, so she went ahead and did the surgery with him. A couple weeks after the surgery, my mom got gangrene. She went back to the Dr. Romero, he said he needed to perform the TT again so he could remove the dead skin. Instead of keeping her at his clinic he told us to bring her home and he would come see her at out house, so we did. My mom started getting worse so we had to call him and remind him to come see her. Dr. Romero came to our house and told us to take her back to his clinic the next day, so we did. My mom got really sick and ended up passing away due to the infection getting so bad. She suffered from tromboembolism, a blood clot. Dr. Romero did not have the proper equipment to stabilize her when she went into shock. The doctor should have told us he could not give her the proper attention and we would have taken her to a hospital. I would not recommend anyone going to this doctor or any in TJ. Since the surgery was done in TJ there was nothing we could do about it.
