How can i express this because its just eating me up.And the transplant itself is stressful.Thank you Michael I'm sorry if i appear rude.Jason.

Response from Mr. Shernoff

You have every right to tell the physician that you are angry at him and feel that your care was mismanaged. At this point I would urge you to try and find another doctor to work with since there is no reason to trust this person any longer. Michael Shernoff, MSW
