80 year old former patient

My complaint is that Dr. West put an implant in my right side that was much larger than my normal breast on my left side. I had breast silicones in me for 30 years. West was suppose to replace one silicone and remove the other completely and have it match to the size of my left breast. When I went in for my follow up visit he said, “Oh my God, I made you a different size breast!” I was so angry with him, how could he not know that he was putting in such a big huge breast. My left breast was no where near the size of the new implant on my right side. A few weeks later I went to his office on “K” Street again to follow up and he was gone. No number, no forwarding address. He was gone. He closed his office but I still had tubes in my breast that needed to come out. I didn’t know what to do so I called Dr. Jay Owens and he told me to come in and he removed the tubes.

Dr. West abandoned me without removing the tubes and placed the wrong size implant in me. The implant since then has deflated and the silicone is in my body. I suffer from pain constantly. I have no financial means of replacing the silicone. What he did to me was wrong and he should have his license revoked for this.
