The doctor didn't look at his chart so how was he suppose to give us a good diagnosis or plan. Physical Therapy is what he suggested.

He talked so fast I could not understand what in the world he even said. I had to ask the nurse and she had to go find him to ask what he actually said to me. He zipped in amd kept trying to leave but I would say "wait," and ask my questions and he barely even answered me and talked over me so I couldn't really talk yo him about what I wanted to talk about. And I waited so incredibly long for the appointment. I'm gonna find an orthopedic doctor elsewhere for the rest of my care. I'm too anxious about my health and in too much pain to he treated like a 5 minute customer. He didn't even give me a moment to answer whether or not he was injecting the cortisone shot in the right place. It was kinda scary and aggressive. I don't feel I got the level of attention and care I deserve for my money.

Doc was rushed and brusque. Pain relief is moderate.
