Ratings for Dr. C. Shayne Mora
Dr. Mora performed an oopherectomy on me. He walked into the the proeop. are where I was waiting, eating a bagel and then brushing off his hands before shaking mine. During the surgery, he severed my ureter. He had to call a urologist to come in and assist. When I woke up I found I had a catheter and my belly had a 8 inch incision down the center. The surgery was to be laparoscopic. When I went in to visit the day after being released from the hospital, he walked in without any gloves and was preparing to examine me. When I asked why he wasn't wearing them, he stated he had washed his hands a few minutes ago. When he removed the staples, my belly split wide open. He had to hold together the edges of my wound WITHOUT gloves! He seemed unable to deal with this on his own, so called in another Dr. who stitched me up. I had to have wound care for 6 weeks, while also using a catheter for the same amount of time. I also had to go into surgery another time to take care of something else that was not taken care of due to the surgery accident. After my belly split open, I called the office and told them I didn't want him touching me again. The doctor who stitched me up took me over as his patient until I was healed up. All in all, it was a terrible ordeal for me and for my family. On the same day as my surgery, he operated on a friend, who ended up with a serious blood infection. Why he is still employed there, or anywhere else, I can only guess. I couldn't get a lawyer to take my case or I would have sued him for malpractice. I guess these cases are hard to prosecute, when someone just "makes a mistake." In my book that was one too many mistakes. By the way, the staff at the office were fantastic and gave me the very best care. the nurses, and the other doctors were very knowledgeable and so helpful.
I went into labor with my 6th child at 37 1/2 weeks. Drove the 45 minutes to the hospital. Dr Mora happened to be in the parking lot. I waved to him, told him I was in labor...but he was on his phone and motioned for me to wait. I waited and waited..20 minutes later iI decided to just go in and get admitted, figuring he would check on me when he was done with his phone call. The nurse confirmed that I was in labor, called the doctor to get permission to admit me. He said no, told her to send me home. My 6th baby...I know what labor feels like and I've always had pretty fast births. I decided to stick around the general location of the hospital and not go home. For the next couple of hours I returned to the hospital 4 times, each time the nurse confirmed I was further dilated, called doctor Mora, he refused to allow me to be admitted. The last time, I was within ten minutes of having the baby. No opportunity for fatal monitoring, or medication. Dr Mora didn't make it in time. The nurse putting in my iv was the only one helping me when the head came out. I was scared. No help. Felt very alone. Dr Mora came in after the baby was already cleaned up and said "wow mama, you have them fast". I didn't really have it fast though...I was in labor for hours, and he didn't admit me and was too lazy to even come check on my labor himself. The nurses officially complained. I also filled a complaint. Nothing was done as far as I know.
Has the bedside manner of a used car salesman. Asks questions, but will respond all answers with "That's nice." Can't attest to the knowledgeability point (the 1 is not honest) as the appointment went by too soon. I really hope he's not on call for the delivery of my baby.
Fantastic Dr. Very personable. Great sense of humor. Occasionally behind schedule because he gives patients the time they need. Very knowledgeable. Family oriented and cares deeply for his patients. He has always been respectful and understanding of my priorities and preferences. Would recommend him to anyone.
