He didnt seemed prepared about my history or remember my last visit, even mentioned that he needed to familiarize himself with my x-rays. I wish there was more emphasis on having a productive relationship, like remembering me or atleast knowing who I was, versus oh hi what what can i do for you.

He correctly diagnosed the problem in 2 minutes. He rushed through the explanation by showing some pictures on the computer that were difficult to understand. A physical model of a skeleton in the office would be 100 times better to understand. He then clicked the computer for some papers to be printed, then he left. It took less than 5 minutes total. The aide then came in and printed the papers and said to perform the exercises. No explanation giving about them. There were 4 exercises listed as Phase I. In total they take 5 minutes. How often do I do them during the day? When should I go to Phase II? What is Phase II? Should I do rehab? Many questions, but I did not even get the papers until after the doctor left. So I guess I will have to contact him to find some answers that should have been explained during the visit.

I'm still dealing with chronic pain in my left knee , an work under these conditions everyday .. I informed provider of new treatment for chronic arthritis knee pain being provided at Houston pain center for arthritis sufferers . Where they do non invasive injection of liquid gel to cushion the knee .. Dr Kiing says they do that at Scott & White but he would not do it .. I'm not going to continue dealing with all it his pain to no avail .. The pain is restricting from doing the things I love to do .. I'm getting a new kneebrace at ortho place on Monday for support an pain management .. My next option after that is change my insurance with ERS to another insurance provider, where I can explore treatment options , like Houston Pain Center for chronic arthritis sufferers ..
