Had the misfortune to be this medical student's victim in a hysterectomy (suspect ovarian mass, history a family death from ovarian cancer). Although I filed a preoperative form indicating I did not authorize any medical students, residents, interns to perform or assist in the operation and brought this to the attention of the doctor of record (Dr. Alan N Gordon), Dr. Gordon had Dr. Julie Olds assist (met her in his offices presurgery - she gave the worst pelvic I ever had - like an episiotomy without the painkiller). According to the medical record, I had to be taken to radiology post op to see if they left any instruments inside me. My recollection includes coming out of the anesthesia during the surgery in excruciating pain (think I was dropped during the transfer to a second gurney)and had to be put back under anesthetic. Awakened with a huge bruise on my stomach other than the incision site. Dr. Gordon disappeared and was replaced post op during my four day "post op stay" by his partner, Dr. Borst with Dr. Olds in tow (apparently Dr. Borst cannot read chart notes either). My last interaction with these clowns was Dr. Olds asking me repeatedly if I wanted to save the morphine bag that was sewn into my incision as a "souvenir" despite the fact that I told her "no thanks" several times (great sensitivity and bedside manner). My advice to you is this: if you are being treated for cancer or needing exploratory surgery, stay away from Olds, Gordon, Borst, St Joseph's Hospital as you will be a guinea pig for the medical students that Borst, Gordon and St Joseph's sponsor and get paid for (conflict of interest, no less).
