San Diego Reconstructive Surgeons Provider Name Locked
has an impressive website and brand new facility but both the doctor and staff are not prepared for emergency situations. I was incorrectly injected with local anesthesia by a staff member when the doctor was not in the room. I immediately had a severe reaction elevating my blood pressure and heart rate. I knew something was terribly wrong and insisted they stop the injections and get the doctor. He said give her a Tylenol and keep going. I insisted they take my blood pressure and his staff member did not know where to find it or how to use it. Dr.

took my pulse and refused to call an ambulance, I felt like I was having a heart attack. I could not breathe and was in severe discomfort. He told them to call my husband to come and get me. He personally mapquested directions to the hospital. There was about 30-40 minutes time delay until they could reach my husband. They did not tell him why he was to come back to the office. Dr.

hid me in a back elevator shaft area so that the other patients in his office could not see me. He wheeled me down a back exit and handed me off to my husband to take me to the hospital. He later falsified and altered the records of what took place in his office on the 13th. He accepted insurance money for the procedure that was not done. I was admitted in intensive care as a result of what took place in his office. He was aware of my history or high blood pressure but never took it until I insisted after the attack took place. I do not have a pathology report to prove that I am cancer free. His office is not equipped with proper emergency equipment nor was his staff prepared. He was more interested in his practice than the safety and well being of me as his patient. He called several days later and argued that a local anesthetic can cause an allergic reaction, which it did. I am now left with a permanent scar on my face and I still do not know if I am cancer free. My main concern is that this does not happen to anyone else. I question that he should be practicing medicine when he clearly lied and falsified my medical records. I have contacted the dermatologist that recommended him and all the state licensing agencies. I contacted the insurance company and when I notified his office that I reported him for accepting insurance money for a procedure that was not done he quickly notified them and agreed to return the money. All of this is on record. As a result of what happened on the 13th it cost me close to 25,000.00 in hospital bills and I am currently under a cardiologists care and a board certified plastic surgeon. Please take this seriously and do not go to this physician for he can not be trusted.
