Procedure review

I fell for the 5 star ratings and rave reviews. But now, after he butchered me and blew me off, the only conclusion to draw is that the only way Dr. Zide's 5 star ratings and rave reviews make any sense is if he is behind them. Maybe he asked his friends to post them. Maybe he posted them himself. I don't know. But the gap between the Dr. Barry Zide build-up and the Dr. Barry Zide reality is too wide not to raise suspicions. And now I find his evil writings, crazy writings, desperate, self-pitying, whining and complaining writings, writings that reveal just how much he hates his patients, how desperate he is to remain a plastic surgeon despite his hatred of people, and the lengths to which he will go to to get patients to trust him, including lying to people about from everything from why he won't show before-and-after pictures, to teaching his residents to make their own fake credentials, "Top Doctor plaques" (he's also a professor of plastic surgery at NYU), to lying about his level of surgical skill in performing a certain procedure. Writing about increasing patient traffic in his practice, he calls it a "Harvest", as if patients amounted to nothing more than livestock. In other places the militaristic language he uses suggests a military commander trying to rally the troops to fight a battle. But who is the enemy? The enemy is the patient (the public) of course.
