Shoshanah Posted February 13 Report Share Posted February 13 I had bad care from two doctors at Quality Care, but was not even aware of it until I came to NYC. I thought these docs in Mexico were wonderful! The dermatologist at Quality Care, Danielle, missed two cancers. A malignant melanoma and a basal cell carcinoma. For a year I asked her about these marks on my skin, and she reassured me twice that they were nothing. If I had not gotten medical care in NYC, I would have died from the melanoma. And when I was looking at photos of melanomas, mine was there!! The basal cell was a tiny red mark on my chin which she attributed to my face mask. Unfortunately, it grew so large under the surface that it took over an hour for the surgeon to remove it, and I have a large scar. I also had a lumbar fusion of L3-L5 (back surgery out of desperation) by Dr. Gabrielle Martinez in 2019 and no pain relief. I just attributed it to bad luck, not anything he did wrong. I consulted the Chief of Spinal Surgery here at NYU in Manhattan. The pins in my back were placed incorrectly during the surgery with angles off 15 degrees. The surgery removed the normal curvature of my spine and my pain has been excruciating for four years. Next week this surgeon at NYU is redoing the surgery and extending it to L2 thru S1. I have high hopes for resuming a life! 1 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
