    I gave her specific areas of pain and how and when it happens but she wrote , unspecific abdominal pain. She did not listen or decided she needed to make her opinion come across. I spoke multiple items about the mesh from 3 prior hernia surgeries and the problems it was causing but she looked at me and said are you having problems with mesh and then said I would need to see a different surgeon. Really I was referred to the Complex Hernia Repair office, she did not have any up dated info, the info was so old I had not seen the doctor they had on record since 2007, they did not have my doctors info or any thing she faxed over

    Melissa Himes provided little information re: PEG tube placement. Was not helpful re.: where to get bloodwork. Was cursory - not connected with me.
