Doctor is knowledgeable but visits are very rushed. Because of this, comments sometimes seem flippant, i.e." do you want the cortisone shot or surgery" "You most likely will be left with some restriction of movement and some level of pain" left me with some questions on the efficacy of treatments.

This particular office was exceptional. The office staff was very accommodating and accepting of my apology for being late. The doctor listen to all of my concerns, took x-rays and results clearly explained to me.

The doctor made a medical judgement on me prior to seeing me based on my records. He spent less than 5 minutes with me. I have a second opinion today and I will know whether he directed me incorrectly. I am frustrated my the lack of communication he had with me that would have addressed my issue in a more helpful manner.
