The verdict is out on this one. While I think he is quite accomplished and knowledgeable I question if things really went well with me. I had Kidney Cancer that metastisized into the Lungs, he took out several nodules that were cancer and one rather large nodule by taking a wedge out. A few hours after surgery I was rushed back into surgery because he had missed a bleeder. Seemed a bit upset that he had to come back to the hospital to do my emergency surgery, too. Also, didn't come to see me after the surgery or the next few days. Nurses told me he had check on my progress. When I questioned what had happened, no answers. While I'm very thankful of my outcome, I still have a little nagging thought that maybe he got in a hurry to get to the next patient scheduled as I know my case put him behind because it was more indepth than he first thought.
