"Let me start this review by saying I have never written a review for any establishment, business, or medical professional before. However, my "experience" with Dr. Carla Retief is one that has led me in and out of the hospital, unemployed, and still suffering from. On May 1st, I went in to have a biopsy on a small mole on my left thigh done. On May 5th I was told I had Stage I Melanoma & it needed to be removed. On May 26th I went in for a “super easy no big deal procedure” to have the mole removed and sent to the lab. The procedure was horrifying for a multitude of reasons. Within 24 hours of coming home, my leg began to swell horrifically, turning purple/ blue with pain that left me unable to walk. I called her office to express my concerns in which nobody returned, I just got a text saying she called more pain meds in & their office was closed for the Holiday Weekend. On May 30th I went to her office and by this time my leg looked like it was about to explode. I went straight to TriStar ...
Southern Hills ( upon her instructions). Upon my arrival, they rushed me to the back, hooked me up on pain meds, and called not 1 but 2 surgeons into my room. I was rushed into Emergency surgery where I was diagnosed with:Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA),Cellulitis ( infection ran from knee to hip bone), & an SSRI.I was kept there for 4 days and what started as a pinky-nail size mole on my left thigh was now a 6cm deep/ 5 cm wide/ 7 cm long hole in my leg that had to have a WOUND VAC put on it. Now fully incapacitated. I had to take off 5 weeks for work, and was inevitably let go due to my inconsistent availability as a result of this infection and wound. For 3 weeks I couldn't walk, drive, or bathe properly.On June 4, 2021 Dr. Carla Retief took it upon herself to go into my chart, retrieve my cell phone number ( HIPPA VIOLATION) and text me that I needed to call her due to an “update” in my pathology results that were urgent….12 days later. I called her and she informed me that they made an error in the diagnosis and I in fact, had Stage II Melanoma.Ultimately, had Dr. Carla Retief done her job and due diligence I : 1)Would never have gotten 3 various types of infection that led to a massive open hole in my leg and a 4 day $5000 hospital bill. 2)Been properly Staged and diagnosed preventing any further delay in treatment with Melanoma where TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE. 3)Would still have my job. 4)Wouldn’t be sitting here waiting for a PET scan to then meet my Oncologist to discuss further treatment which now includes: radiation. As the daughter of a late Veterinarian, Granddaughter of a Doctor who ran his own practice for 50+ years, and the niece of an RN, I have nothing but respect for the medical community. HOWEVER, Dr Carla Retief is the prime example of the medical professionals out there who truly don’t care about their patients’ well being, are in it for the money, and lack any humanity about them at all. I hope my story saves someone from making the same mistake I did. I hope my words make their way to her and if you’re reading this Dr Retief: shame on you for what you did to me, what you continue to ask of me financially, and the audacity you have to call yourself a professional. Shame. On. You. "
