    Most significant issue was with another person's records in front of Dr. Franklin rather than mine, resulting in x-rays needed to monitor changes in my condition not being ordered. Also, nurse told me I was 5'6 at my last visit. I am 5'1. Last straw was being billed a year later for a treatment. Billing department was rude when after about 20 calls, I was finally able to talk to them. Looking for a new rheumatologist now.
