He's a great doctor, removed a cyst from my face in '09 and explained everything thoughly. He was very proffesional and the nurse that helped during my procedure was very kind and reassuring as I was pretty nervous lol. I would definetly see him again if I needed anything done.

I had MOHS surgery on my nose performed by Dr. Day back in 1990. He was very cruel - the painkiller did not numb my nose so I asked for another shot. He stuck a needle in my nose and when I winced and cried out in surprise and pain he told me to shut up. I thought he was a creep and I am not surprised he is on trial.

Because I didn't have a lot of doctor options in Corpus, I would drive into San Antonio to Dr. Day for skin cancer. I remember on the first visit being told to strip down which I found disconcerting but did because I assumed they knew what they were doing. I was given a small paper gown which did not cover well. After waiting for an interminable time, an office receptionist came into my room to grill me on my insurance and saying that I would need to pay an extra $800 in addition to my insurance. She had left the door open and other patients and staff would walk by the room, clearly seeing me only covered in this little paper. I remember being taken aback by this lack of professionalism and wondering why this receptionist had a right to come in and grill me in a procedure room while I wasn't dressed. Later, Day came in with a nurse and they took many pictures of my body. I remember starting to shake because I found it frightening; again, however, I questioned my intuition and had to assume they knew what they were doing. However, I must say that the areas where Day cut skin cancer were well done and left no scars. On another visit, I was given shots of the skin numbing they use prior to cutting. I really hate those shots as they are sometimes more painful than actually cutting into the skin. The nurse gave me one shot right in the nose which brought tears to my eyes. The nurse went out and was talking to another nurse where my son was sitting and said I was a big cry baby. Since then, I've gone to a different doctor in another state and have truly seen what a GOOD doctor and staff are like. He uses something in the skin numbing shots so that they're not painful. Also, he never took pictures of me naked. He and his staff are very caring and efficient, plus his office is clean and not dirty and cluttered like Day's. Though I've had extensive moh's surgery, it's hardly noticeable (much less scarring than Day's work). Looking back, I think that people thought Day was so great because they really had few other options than him. Medical care in South Texas is really dismal.

Correction, I should say that there were some scars by Day but nothing like the bullet-hole shaped scars left by a doctor in Corpus, prior to me seeing Day.
