    Yesterday I went to this Dr. because I have had bad leg pain for over two months, I have low back problems and needed a referral for an Orthopaedic since I had Orthopaedic procedures done in 2010. Dr. Pothiawala sent me blood work and a hip X-Ray even though I showed him an MRI of my low back. My wife question him of why didn't he referred me and what was the next step to follow and he didn't liked that. Next day day called my wife and discharged me as a patient and don't what me back.
