Procedure(s) I had done:   None


I was referred to Aronowitz for removal of a pea-sized growth on my son's hand - and was told that it could be tied off with a string and leave a dot of a scar, or, if done by Aronowitz, won't leave a scar. Well, it left a huge scar, got inflamed, I kept calling the office and they kept telling me that it's OK, it will go away, finally I made an appointment to have the redness and inflammation looked at. Aronowitz removed the stitches but left a piece that he couldn't get out and now my son has a huge scar with a discoloration resulting from the piece of stitch that was left behind. The staff's response is that it will go away as my son's hand grows in a few years or I can come back for a scar revision and polishing!!!! The reason this was done at a plastic surgeon's office is so that there would be no scar!!!! This doctor is a butcher - incredibly disappointing results, I would never trust this surgeon with anything!
