The recovery and 40 plus surgeries that followed, provided her with a front row seat to the best and worst that conventional (allopathic) medicine offered. including exposure to MRSA, which led to the amputation of her left hand. Dr. Patti was able to go on to law school and complete her dream of becoming a lawyer.
