Patient Comments (1)

Very uncompassionate. Didn't know about my condition (Tarlov Cyst disease) Didn't allow me to explain my symptoms. Didn't look at my MRI. Kept asking me to sit despite me stating how much it hurt. He acted like I was faking my symptoms. It was the coldest visit I ever had. Traveled 50 miles round...more
