    I've been reading articles by a Dr in PBG who stressed not to ignore leg pain & swelling. I called to make an appt with Dr Tapper. I was asked "why" & tried to explain leg pain,was cut off & asked if veins were protruding or spider veins. I said I have some spider veins but before I could finish I was cut off again, told no need to see Dr, my ins didn't cover it, it was $300 for 30 min. I again tried to explain the pain & wish to see Doc. NOPE! Non-M.D. phone diagnosis? To PBG Doc I go!
