Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

I was damaged by lasik in my left eye in 2000. He finally admitted that i had a decentration and wrinkles in my flap, but that he didn't have the laser to fix the problem. I had to go to a specialist in another country, to try to get my eye fixed but it was damaged too bad and i had to receive a corneal transplant. Dr told me he would foot the bill or reimburse me for the surgeries that it would take to fix my eye, i believed him and never went to a lawyer. Once it came time to be reimbursed, he said he didn't remember saying that he would reimburse me, and my statute of limitations ran out. I never rec'd a dime from him. I had to foot the bill on this by myself. I lost my house from these high surgery bills and now have to live with a corneal transplant because of this dr. Not one time over the years has he ever dropped a call or a letter to see how my eye was doing. This guy shouldn't even be a dr in my opinion. He now has a clinic in another country, and i wonder how many other people he has damaged since me.
