    -Des Moines, IA |

    Went to see him when under work comp, due to neck pain, scapula pain, pain down arms, wrist & hand pain with numbness, tingling & lack of sensation. He was absolutely rude and obnoxious! Interrupted me when I tried to speak or ask a question. Raised his voice at me & my husband when he couldn't sit & be quiet anymore. Chances are some of this may have been because I was there for WC. I wouldn't go see him again if he was the last surgeon available. Btw initial WC hearing came down in my favor.
