matter of fact wrote:
He is not on staff at KDMC (as Ciarry tries to say he is). And, they did get rid of him due to inconsistencies in surgery, bedside manner and his personal behavior within the medical center. He can only see patients and operate at OLBH. Although many like him, there are many who have had issues with the way his surgeries are performed. Personally his bedside manner was enough to make me run. He is rude, arrogant and obviously pre occupied--which makes me question if I had surgery with him if he would have paid attention during the surgery. He may have been in this area 20 years and have some experience, but that by far does not make him the best!
He does have privileges at KDMC and does perform operations at KDMC. Check your facts before posting inaccurate statements. You can start by simply checking KDMC's website.

Dr. Love at KDMC removed a piece of a patients leg without consent or giving them proper anesthesia.

His PAST has shown the truth.
You can see him for what he truly is...or not.
He does not care about his patients.
He is not THAT skilled.

Looks like anger management classes need to continue for Dr. Love and his partners in crime.

hmmmmm... so intersting to stumble across this one..This doctor did my mothers knee repalcements (both) at one time...He did not even know one person who was in the OR with him.. after 3 surgeries. She went in July 5th either 2000 or 2001 and she came out of KDMC the week after labor day....his surgery notes were no more than a couple pages for each of the 3 surgeries.... oh and after he did the third one she ended up in ICU.... The DR who did life saving surgery in ICU had almost 200 pages of notes..it included anyone on the room during surgery and if they touched her in anyway, even if it was the nusre who tok her left hand and brush the hair back away from her face...and yes that was an actual statement in the ICU notes... A lawsuit was looked into and the bottom line was , it was a suit capale of winning, but not enough to make anyone rich. My mother didnt believe it was worth the stress and strain in her life to persue.... The main reason the settlement would have been lowered was becasue DR Love didnt bill her for a penny or KDMC.....They didnt even bill medicaid...Now thats 10 weeks in the hospital, 3 surgeries by Love, one week in ICU , plus that Dr... and not billed for one penny, Medicaid was not even billed... all that for free... That should tell you something about this one case...I dont know about now, but at that time he was doing surgeries like going thru a drive-thru... as many as he could do in a day, like an assembly line. I only mention the main issues in the post... there were others...Just remember the saying Where there is smoke there is usually fire... And Dr Love is surrounded by smoke. I dont know about settlements but i have seen numerous times he has been sued since my mothers hosptalization... My recommendation is FIND ANOTHER DR.... My apologies this was not more well written...

My sister was treated horribly by Dr. Love and his staff. She was sent to him for her disability consult (she was in a terrible accident) He gave her the percent of disablity while she was in his office, then when she received the written report it was totally different. She attempted to call him to find out where the discrpency was, and his staff refused to get the info for her He refused to talk to her. Then they sent her a letter threatening to get a RESTRAINING ORDER if she didn't quit calling. All she was trying to do was get her information. When she finally had her atty contact him, his answer was that he had her confused with another patient and the origanal percentage was correct. She said his staff was horrible to her-she called me crying. This was after suffering a broken back, hip, and arm. She got full disability, but I wouldn't recomment him to anyone after the was she was treated.

When my son was little he broke his arm and Dr. Love took care of it with no problems. But there wasn't anything major involved with it. And he is arrogant and acts like he is better than you. But he did fix my sons arm. But, a few years ago my sister went to him because she was in pain and he told her she needed something removed and he did the surgery and she was still in pain he kept telling her she just wanted pain pills there was nothing there to hurt. After a year she went to another Dr. for something else and she had put that surgery down as past surgery and when he did xrays he told her he thought she had that removed. He hadn't removed it, yet he had done surgey on her and it was in her records that he had removed it. I wouldn't go to him. I have had my children at Dr. Aiken and he is very good.

I would highly not recommend Dr. Love. He messed up simple carpal tunnel surgeries. After surgeries I couldn't even bend my wrists. He personally called me at home to check on me cause he was worried. I had to have a plastic surgeon to go in and recut both wrists so I could have some movement in which I had some nerve and muscle damage. He didn't seem concerned and has no bedside manners what so ever. I don't know about anyone else's experience but I have very little use or strength in my hands and wrists and I believe it was due to his incompetence.

I previously worked for a local chiropractor, and while there we had a patient who came to us for rehab following shoulder surgery done by Dr. Love. After several weeks of rehab, the patient was showing some improvement, but not nearly where he should be, returned to Dr. Love's office for a re-evaluation. Dr. Love claimed him just fine & returned him to work. Within a few months, the patient had to go back into surgery (again with Dr. Love) and have the same procedure repeated because the first surgery only aggravated the original condition & made it worse. And once again, Dr. Love returned him back to work, even though the patient continued to have issues. And again, a few months later the patient was looking at surgery once
more, but this time he has chosen to seek out a different doctor. However, he was told that this one will only help him regain partial use of his shoulder & arm, because the other two surgeries had only made the original condition significantly worse. He will never be able to return to his chosen profession, never be able to play catch with his son, may not be able to use his shoulder & arm at all! All for what should have been a minor, standard shoulder surgery...

I had hurt my wrist very bad on an ATV and I orginally went to the Jewish Hospital Hand Care Center in Louisville and they screwed ne up even worse. I then went to Dr. Love and he not only fixed their mistakes, he also made my wrist feel like new. I would definitely recommend him!!!

He did surgery on my girlfriend when she feel and broke her wrist. The first surgery, he cut to much of the ( ulna ) one of the bones in the wrist then she had to have another surgery when he said that he was going to take bone graft from her hip, but instead used donor bone without even getting her permision. Then after all of that she still had to have 1 more surgery!So that made 3 surgeries all togeather!!I PROMISE YOU that i would not take my dog to him!!!!
