Patient Comments (1)
in New York |
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 trip in pain to see him. I asked if he ever heard of Tarlov Cyst disease? He answered " I know what Tarlov Cyst are and they aren't symptomatic".
