    Said he could "Cure" my vertigo, Me, "Cure?", Him, "Yes, Cure". Do it. Cortizone shot in right hip, three prescriptions for meds, some were steriodes. I gained 30 lbs, still have vetigo only worse, 2 months after, rt hip major pain (scale from 1-10 pain is an 8, non-stop for 4 months now). He refused to admit he used the word "Cure", pretty much calling me a lier, and refused to repay me for the office visit & meds. Ordered x-ray, came out normal. Still in level 8 pain with 30lbs.
