"I would let my vet operate on me before I let this quack even talk to me again. I was in the hospital with a gastro issue diverticulitis with perforated intestine. First call of action is with very minor perforation for antibiotics for 48 hours per real hospital such as Mayo clinic and John Hopkins. This quack was ready to cut me open and give me a colostomy bag in less than 12 hours. Even when my white cell count was lowering to save zone, he still wanted to cut me and give me a major surgery. I asked repeatedly for second opinion. They didn't have one I asked repeatedly for a transferred. They couldn't get one. Nobody would take me until they found out I was going to walk out of the hospital without signing any papers including against medical advice. Suddenly they had me transferred to St. David were a week later. I was released on antibiotics and I'm healing great again. Before I would let this quack even talk to me. I would go and have my vet do surgery. You make your own decision. ...
This guy should not have a license and I'm going to do everything in my power through the board to make sure he loses it "
