I had this same surgery 8 years ago at a well known big hospital in Houston, TX. Dr. Elkins and Baxter Regional Medical Center has them beat! Fantastic care. I had a thoracotomy - great pain management. Terrific care coordination with other doctors.
Nurse Practitioner Mayo,
loves to prescribe any medication anybody wants unless they get sick or have a stroke or something then he fires them as a patient, so he can't get sued for overprescribing meds. He also is clueless and never knows the correct diagnosis or treatment for any condition.
