My husband had vein surgery.After the surgery most drs. come out to the waiting room and meet with the family.Not Dr. Carballo.He didn't come to the recovery room either.He left no post operative instructions for us.When we asked the nurse what we needed to do for the next few days, weeks or months, she had to call someone from the dr.'s staff. At the follow up appt. my husband pointed out a vein that the dr. missed. The dr. called it a re-ocurring vein(which it's not...it was always there) and scheduled another surgery.Counting the 2 laser surgeries plus the last vein stripping and now the upcoming surgery, that makes 4 procedures. enough is enough. If you know what your doing you get it right the first time.On top of all this, one of the incisions opened up 3 weeks after the vein stripping and became infected(red, swollen and very tender to the touch). Only glue was used on the incisions. The dr. did not want to see my husband. He had his nurse phone in a script for an antibiotic
