I contracted a MRSA infection from his surgical facility. He has the personality of a rock, which is made even worse by the "Stepford" women who work for him. They are all wide-eyed with the same expression and perma-grin....just TOO happy. I called his office to report that my incisions were red and 'itchy' and was told that they would call in a prescription for more antibiotics and all would be well. I ended up in complete renal failure, clinging to life. I feel fortunate to have lived through it, but was left with nothing but scars, no implants and thousands of dollars of doctor's bills. He refused to take any responsibility, although every other doctor I saw told me that there was no doubt that the infection came from his office. I tried to report him, sue him, and do everything I could do to warn others about his horrible practice, but was shot down by the NC Medical board and every attorney I contacted. I just want to warn others and hope no one else has to suffer what I did.
