Rochester, NY |
I have RA,my rheumatologist refers me to flemister, he was very rude, cold, and actually threw his hands up pushed his chair back and basically didn't want to deal with me! I hope I caught him on a bad day or something but that doesn't excuse his actions that was my first and last appointment with him! Oh yeah he did send me for an MRI and I don't have enough characters to tell you all that is wrong but I hope he feels like ??

The procedure was successful and after my incapacitated period with cast & walking boot and extensive physical therapy for rehabilitation. Results SUPER !
