Dr. Korman was my daughter's Dr. for 12 years, she trusted him, loved him and then recently he changed and for some reason has given my daughter the run around for a year while she suffered with cysts on her ovaries until one of them finally burst. He kept telling her if they got worse he would remove them. Finally when she had another surgery by another doctor who told her that they needed to be removed as she was in danger of getting cancer, she went to him and said she really needed them out. He told her he would not do the surgery because he didn't think she would be happy with the outcome. My doctor said this sounded strange to him along with the fact that Dr. Korman wouldn't even give her pain meds. He told me to check on his record and when I did I found a felony conviction. She is going to another doctor that is going to do the surgery but I hope everyone doesn't listen to the hype on his medical page and check on his record themselves. He only practices at one small hospital for a reason and it has nothing to do with hospital quality. The hospital Emergency Room is dirty and has horrible care. She presented with horrible abdominal pain, high blood pressure, pulse ox 92, unable to urinate, and after many MRI's and tests all they could find was cysts on ovaries and one had burst, which Dr. Korman wouldn't remove. After going to another doctor and hospital the found her liver was failing from having so many stones in her gallbladder it was three times it's size and backing into her pancreas causing horrible pain plus she had been passing kidney stones so it had torn the urethra and they found a large melanoma on her back that the other doctors and hospitals missed. She had three surgeries in three weeks but still was having problems so they continued to send her to specialists. They found a horrible hernia and she has had it repaired. She still has, now, 14 cysts on her ovaries and a 0 count of hormones but because of my post here the doctor in the Bay Area who said she needed surgery will not do it because of her close association with Dr. Korman. I don't know how my daughter has stood the pain and trauma inflicted on her but I do know that this cannot end here. This post is to hopefully help someone so they don't have to go through this. My daughter is a sweet girl who trusted her doctor and the hospital she had used for over 20 years and they not only let her down but I feel abused her. I will make her an appointment with my doctor here this morning and get this taken care of. I would say that 5 surgeries in three months should tell the doctors that something went terribly wrong with this doctor and this emergency room and that they would feel compassion for my daughter, not punish her for being hurt. I still don't know how they linked my post to my daughter since we live in two different cities but the new doctor did and has now refused her surgery. One more punishment for the innocent. ""Do No Harm"" seems to not work in some areas that have the ""brotherhood"" method of medicine. I am shocked and sickened by this entire ordeal she has suffered. The new doctor told her that I could get sued for this post but it is all true and you do not get sued for speaking the truth. If the doctors stand together then we must too in able to protect our children. Even the doctor told me that the Clear Lake ER was not run by the hospital but by an ER doctors group but they send their patients there so they need to be held responsible. \r
As for the Clear Lake Hospital, I don't know because they never admitted her there. The new pcp uses St. Johns and she was admitted there as an emergency and they were great.
