My experience with Dr Budak was very poor. I went in to have lap-band as a keyhole procedure. The surgery did not proceed as planned and I almost died. I did not get the band because I was in a serious condition. I was ventilated for four days and had eight blood transfusions. My family were told I would probably die. Dr Budak gave me my money back - I still had to cover the cost of the vascular surgeon etc. so I was well and truly out of pocket. Dr Budak said I had 'Aberrant vessels'. I have since I've had major surgery - one other doctor said I had aberrant vessels too when he killed me a year after my failed band. I believe this doctor is no longer able to practice. I had two further very major operations. The doctors who performed these surgeries did very extensive testing - including consulting vascular surgeons. Funnily enough the extensive testing found NO aberrant vessels. Dr Budak discharged me despite me projectile vomiting an hour before I saw him. I went to my local hospital because I was so unwell. They admitted me but discharged me when Dr Budak told them I was an anxious patient - I think I spent a night or two in hospital. I was pretty cakm considering what I went through. I was readmitted later in the evening (same day as I was discharged). I was very unwell. My key-hole must have been designed to fit a huge key - I got a 38cm wound. I had tubes everywhere. No band! I think this is a disaster. I don't know why I didn't think to write a review years ago. I did see a solicitor. Basically, I think the case not proceeding was more to do with the solicitor. I know a solicitor who has a current case against Dr Budak. I have no idea of the details so I can't comment. In my case they said, "It was reasonable risk of the surgery". Hmmm not sure about that. As I said, I think it was the solicitor's poor management. Hope this helps you to make an informed decision. I am sure things have improved. My surgery was years ago and I know Dr Budak's practice has expanded.
