This is hands down the worst experience of my life with a doctor! I paid 60 dollars for this man to tell me he cant do anything to wait 6 more months and see if it goes away. i haven't been able to sleep in weeks my left side and leg hurt so bad i can barely stand after sitting. I brought my MRI and all my exams, he just brushed me off with no guidance nor solution. Do not go to his office find a better doctor who knows what he is really doing and willing to resolve the issue!
