Ratings for Dr. David C. Stanton
My 83 Year old mother was referred for a facial swelling and pain, for possible osteomyelitis to the jaw. Right away he stated he would need to do surgery to scrape the bone and remove some teeth to get to the infection. She had a CT scan several months before that did not show any osteomyelitis. When we asked if he should do an MRI first to establish the presence of infection in the bone, he said no and did the surgery any way. He found no infection in her mouth. He then wanted to do a needle biopsy and was stopped by the radiologist who told him to do an MRI first because he said going in "blind" was dangerous. An MRI was done later after discharge from U of Penn. NO osteomyelitis found. She went through dangerous painful surgery that has left her with gum deformity and a numb chin from damage to a facial nerve. U of Penn needs investigate his medical knowledge. He has refused to call us back to respond to our questions but his nurse has called to schedule another appointment.
