Without discussing the need for an x-ray or MRI that would show the condition the PA said that I could possibly have, I was instead directed to have more PT. This time it would be for ribs that might be dislocated. As it turns out the rehabilitation and physical therapy wing of Baylor, Scott & White notified me that they do not have chiropractic care. I feel as if I have been left with a last resort, one of which my insurance most likely will not cover. there must be an alternative that I could go to that provides medical care or some examination that could definitely show that this would be the problem that is with ribs that have been dislocated. I am at a loss as to what I need to do. I've had chronic pain for three years, after having trauma to my shoulder with a heavy weight. Unsure what I should do

Without emotion. Didn't explain much. Suggested methods already tried. I don't think he ever looked at my health history at all.

I was very pleased with the whole visit from start to finish. We were immediately acknowledged and directed to the correct area. Every doctor and nurse we had interaction with were very nice and professional. I really liked the fact that the doctor consulted with his coworkers and made the decision to treat for fracture even though it was unclear if there was actually a fracture. I also liked that the casting tech explained everything he was going to do and made sure we were comfortable and also that he went out of his way to make sure my son was having fun.

the PA was heartless. made me feel like a drug addict as opposed to a person in enormous pain. he was dismissive condescending and unkind. I felt embarrassed and humiliated by him. he should not be practicing in an industry of care for patients.

I was impressed by the coordination of care among doctors and the speed with which I was able to move from my appointment with PA Paiva to get treatment at the pain center in the same building. Very well handled.
