Although this provider was a PA, he was an orthopedic PA, who seemed to have excellent knowledge of knees and knew what to do.

He seemed to have a diagnosis when he came in. He listened to my lungs, but wasn\'t concerned about the amount of rattling that was happening in my chest! I ended up missing a week of work and had to go back with much worse symptoms! I went to a different clinic, because my clinic couldn\'t see me that day! I saw a different provider and got the diagnosis that I needed and am recovering now.
