11/09/13 4 4 1 3 Worst experience of my life. Hands down. Botched surgery that took three years to heal from. Bad outcome was blamed on me and this within hours of my surgery when I could not have even made a difference. Bedside manner was atrocious because even another doctor and the nurses knew he had blown it so he needed to blame someone, and I was it. Landed in the hospital for an extended stay. I actually think he is a good surgeon normally but he took shortcuts that cost me two years of my life and continued to blame me on subsequent visits and bully me. I think sometimes when we make mistakes we can't own them and, if you're a god-like doctor, treating the patient dismissively and in a domineering manner lets you believe that this wasn't your fault. It was. 100% I could have sued. I chose not to. I chose the best health clinic in the world and regained my life instead. I put my energy into healing.  Respond

14/04/10 5 5 5 5 After making an appt. with Dr. Carveth for a colonoscopy, I wound up in the hospital and met him when he came to see me there. I had been in terrible pain for months among other problems. After deciding what was wrong, (perforated intestines and abscesses, he performed robotic intestinal surgery and I am normal for the first time in almost a year. My wounds are healing up beautifully, almost invisible, even the 4" long one. I was out of the hospital in a week and back at work 2 weeks after that. Dr. Carveth listens to you, answers your questions and makes you understand what is wrong and what is needed to fix you up. Personally, I think he is a miracle worker. All my intestinal problems are gone. After waiting so long and being so scared to get checked out, he made it a not so unpleasant experience. Compared to my prior two abdominal surgeries, this was a picnic in the park. Everyone should have a Dr. Carveth in their life. I can't thank him enough.
