From what I saw the doctor did not know my treatment history. Although he seemed knowledgeable about my latest MRI but drew conclusions too quickly. Recomend treatments that have failed more than once. My records are very clear and should have been reviewed before a conclusion was drawn. He was visibly irritated that I related that Gabapentin, Celebrex, Lyrica and others I can not recall have been tried and failed. At that point he asked me "what can I do to help you" and "what do you want me to do". I replied that I do not know his job. At this point he was visibly done with me. As I began to ask a question about Celebrex he replied no as he was out the door. It was clear to me that he had a predetermined course before we met and my viewpoint was of no consequence. Competitively in my line of work with simple man made machinery a good technician does best when they look at the big picture and repair history. How much more so when treating the complex human body?

my 1st visit I wasn't to sure about him, then my 2nd I really liked him. My 3rd visit has changed my whole view on him.My appt was at 8:30 I waited exactly an hr after for him. He spent maybe 5 minutes with me...never examined me and totally contradicted everything this visit that he had said at my prior visit.
