Did you get any procedure(s) done by this doctor?   Yes
Date of your procedure(s):   September 2, 2010
Procedure(s) I had done:   None


I had four major surgeries on Sept 2nd and FL on Sept 5th. Doctor assured me that it would be safe. He done FL when I already showed signs of complications. High fever, staph infection, opened leaking wounds, 2 pelvic abscesses. I spend few days in Canadian hospital and was told by local doctors that I had to much surgeries done at once and wasn't taken proper care after. I'm still sick and have a nurse visiting everyday. When I tried to speak up to warn others, he released my confidential information (with lots of lies) to another patient who posted them on Plastic Surgery Journeys board. Besides he lied in my medcial rapport trying to make that I had 3 surgeries instead of four and didn't mention my FL at all. He wrote that all those surgeries were 4,25 minutes when in fact they were 8 hours. Can any doctor preform middle body lift, large umbilical hernia repair, upper back lift, breast reshaping with skin tucking under arm pits in 4,25 minutes when regular TT takes between 3,5-5 hours?! Very unethical and money motivated doctor. Please, be careful!
