Doctors are supposed to care for their patients, right? This guy is a little different. Actually, he’s totally different. He doesn’t care for his patients. He lies, cheats, and manipulates his patients in order to gain their trust. He does unnecessary procedures on his patients and carries them out without feeling any speck of remorse or guilt. He is a live monster. I don’t think that he should be allowed to operate on people like this. He is a mentally ill professional who needs some help. This guy ruined my dad’s knee. He can’t walk properly without feeling a stinging pain. Dr. Mark did such a horrible job with his ACL tear repair that he got my dad’s foot infected. The leg had swollen up and at one point, we feared that my dad might have to live with only one leg from now on. The experience was horrible. And the pain was much worse. I don’t have the words to explain the kind of agony my family and especially my dad had to go through because of the negligence of Dr. Mark. This guy put my dad’s life at risk only for the sake of a few bucks. His surgery cost me $15,000 and I can tell you, it was the worst expense in my whole life. I had taken my dad to Dr. Mark’s office to get proper treatment for his knee pain. I knew Dr. Mark was an expert in hip and knee issues so I thought he’d be able to provide my dad with the perfect treatment. To my surprise, he didn’t even bother to read the files properly. He started recommending my dad to undergo ACL repair procedure. ACL stands for Anterior Cruciate Ligament and according to him, it had a tear which needed immediate attention. My dad got scared and he thought Dr. Mark was telling us the truth. I had a little suspicion at that time already but I didn’t think this guy would be so negligent. He didn’t tell my dad about any alternatives. I found out about the alternatives later when I looked up for them. When I discussed this with him, he told me that he didn’t think it was necessary to discuss useless treatments with us. My dad underwent the procedure and everything seemed okay. Then, after a few days of the surgery, I noticed a lot of swelling in my dad’s foot. I took him to a hospital and there, we found out that he had developed an infection in his foot because of the surgery. It was a horrible experience. He was in a lot of pain because of that infection. I complained about it but I got no serious response. No one thinks Dr. Mark was responsible for it. I don’t think so. I think he had a huge role to play in this situation. Not only did he force my dad to undergo surgery but he also did a poor surgical procedure.
