The doctor would not answer my direct questions instead chose to answer in his doctors notes which I had to go to my primary doctor to get him to read to me. If he would have talked to me I would have provided important information that may have changed his answer. I don't know was my #1 answer received my #2 was I can give you a drug to help with that but I don't recommend it. VERY DISAPPOINTED!

Terrible experience- actually started going to a doctor 2 hours away just because it was so bad. He was not very helpful in suggesting new things for my arthritis as well as was not very good at answering questions or any concerns that I had.

He was very thorough in his examination. Explained everything in detail
