in Memphis, TN |
I went to this doctor as a referral to get better treatment options for my chronic pain in my upper back due to broken vertebra. It took over 1 hour to even see the doctor then I was talking to him no less than 5 minutes. All he kept saying was I don't treat chronic pain when it says everywhere on the Internet and his office that he does! I have no history of anything bad he just refused to accept me as a patient!! Why???
