*Dr. Michael F. Vaezi was inadequately prepared for my visit because he had not received the correct medical records. "Why are you here?"

*Dr. Vaezi spent at least 1/2 hour with us. After surgery was agreed upon he immediately arranged for me to be seen by the surgeon who spent another 45 minutes explaining things.
