I am not the patient but I am writing on behalf of my family friend, whom I love and care for. I will name her J for privacy. J complained of pain in her uterus in December of last year (2019) so she got an ultrasound. She was not able to see Pellicena quick enough before the pandemic but she has been feeling ill and finally was able to get an appt this week. Turns out that Pellicena told J that "she has a tumor that is big and by the looks of it, it's cancerous". Also, that ultrasound from december came out abnormal and the doctor just told her this week.
J had to be admitted to the hospital this week and turns out that she does NOT have a tumor. The doctors at Memorial Hermann in the Woodlands did another ultrasound and checked multiple times and there is NO tumor. Pellicena is unethical, unprofessional, gave the incorrect diagnosis and operated through fear. Evil and wicked are the words to describe her actions towards J. I am disgusted. There is more than enough history and testimony of doctors ignoring, misdiagnosing, humiliating, abusing and neglecting women patients and for a female doctor, an OBGYN, to do this to J, is horrible to say the least.
