Ratings for Dr. Jessica Mcalpine
I had vulvar Vinn3 removed by this doctor on December 8 2017. I had seen my gynecologist who told me that he was sending me to a" professional " for removal as he believed due to the size and location of the lesion I would need a skin graph. I saw Dr. McAlpine who stated that she would not do a skin graph. I stated that I was told I needed one and she just said"no, I'm not doing that and proceeded to draw a picture of a vertical line with horizontal lines through it as her procedure. Within 1 week of the procedure I began to bleed and developed a infection Just sitting on the toilet stressed the surgery site and in ripped open. I spent from December 22 to the 31 st in the hospital. I had to go to the Or twice to clean the site. Now I have a gapping hole and require plastic surgery to repair what she did to me. I am in constant pain and very depressed . My road to recovery will be long and painful because of her lack of knowledge or caring.
She did my LEEP procedure and going in I was beyond nervous. She was very gentle, and quite funny actually which helped a lot. She talked to me during the freezing process so I never even noticed what was happening. The LEEP itself took like 30 seconds max. I left th hospital feeling like nothing had been done! Anyone who is nervous about this procedure, don't be. It was a total breeze.
Before surgery and during my hospital stay, and my follow up appointments, Dr. McAlpine was open to answering my questions, explained my situation (cancer diagnosis) thoroughly and demonstrated a caring and empathic bedside manner. An excellent surgeon not only from the standpoint of preforming my surgery, but also in communicating with and giving support to me during a challenging life situation.
