we were referred to him from an oral surgeon to remove cancer in my husbands tongue. He was a great disappointment. He has a higher opinion of himself then his skills really are. He cut a section of the tongue and because the lab took too long to come back and say whether he had clean edges or to cut more he decided to cut some more and close, he was in a rush and didn't care if he had it all/cut more then he had to, it was all about his time, the first section came back clean so the second cut was 100% unneeded and my husband lost a piece of his tongue for nothing. He also said he woke up during the procedure and it took 5 people to hold him down, what!! The recovery was brutal, 2 weeks of torture, the tongue was swollen/bruised/pain radiating from the tongue to his ear & head. We recently had to go thru this again, the doctor we chose this time did a beautiful job. the day after surgery he felt great, was able to eat and did not need medication. what a difference when you choose the right doctor.
