In October of 1998 Dr. Jack Shimko operated on my left foot and ruin my life forever. I can no longer work on the job I had before the surgery, nor can I work the hours I worked before. I am lucky to be able to work 5 hours a day, which has made it almost impossible to keep up the payments on the medical bills I have due to this surgery. He thought I had a bunion and it turned out to be a bone problem which he tried to remove part of the bone, this he should not have done. I believe he should have closed the incision up and referred me to an orthropedic doctor.I was only suppose to be out 2 weeks at the most, and it turned out I was out of work for 6 months. I am back at work but not on the job I did before nor can I work the hours I worked before. I am in constant pain and am under the care of a doctor for this. I receive painful injections in my foot that enables me to work on it for awhile. I have had physical therapy numerous times, which did no good. As far as what I think I should get as compensation, there is not enough money in the world that would cover all the pain and suffering I have gone through. I do have a lawyers name, but have not contacted him, wasn't really sure what to do. I have gone through so much the past year and a half, I was afraid of messing up again. I hope this report will help someone else if they have any intentions of going to this Doctor. Take my advice, seek other options.

I will greatly appreaciate any help I can get from you.

DR SHIMKO WAS WONDERFUL TO WORK WITH AND FOR. HE'S A GOOD PERSON AND EVEN BETTER DOCTOR. I KNOW THE LADY THAT FILED THIS COMMENT. I WAS THERE WHEN THE SURGERY WAS DONE. DR. SHIMKO DID NOTHING WRONG. HE WOULDN'T HAVE DONE SOMETHING THAT HE HAS A LACK OF KNOWLEDGE OF AS THIS LADY HAS CALLED IT. IF THAT WERE SO TRUE AS SHE SAYS THEN SHE WOULD'VE HEADED STRAIGHT TO A LAWYER'S OFFICE AND START A LAWSUIT. INSTEAD SHE SAYS SHE DIDN'T CAUSE SHE DIDN'T KNOW TO DO. WELL IF A DOCTOR SCREWED UP MY FOOT I WOULD SURE AS HELL SUE THE CRAP OUT OF THEM. I REALLY DON'T THINK SHE TOOK GOOD CARE OF HERSELF AFTER THE SURGERY THUS NOT HEALING UP RIGHT AND HAVING PAIN. LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING. HIS PRACTICE HAS GROWN AND HIS PATIENTS LOVE HIM. IF HE WAS SO NEGLIGENT OR STUPID IN THIS FIELD HOW COULD THAT BE HAPPENING?
