I would try to explain the history of my back problem and I was constantly interrupted. I suggested an MRI be done after several attempts of trying to explain the problem. I was under the impression that it was going to be done right there and then but now I have to wait at least 2 weeks before the next step is determined. I tried to explain the pain was unbearable at nights and no medication was provided until I called the next day requesting meds! seemed not concerned about my issue. once the mri is done, I'm switching doctors, actual doctor, not a PA!

the care provider was to quickn I have epilepsy and slows my comprehension and my ability to communicate. I wish he had taken more time so I could gather my thoughts and communicate more clearly. over all it was a fair appointment. I will make a list for my next appointment, if I can remember to.

I have only seen him once, while I am very disappointed that he chose to only look at a small portion of my back, that may be all he needed to see. I will continue to give Scott and white a chance to manage my pain.
