Patient Comments (2)
Unnecessary excruciating pain . No explanation why he was doing this painful test. I could not use my right hand for hours. It has been over 11 hours and my hand from the bottom of my thumb to top of wrist and around to the bottom of my index finger where he put a needle between thumb and index finger is still swollen almost as bad as at first. This needle test should not be allowed without anesthesia. This was the third part of a 2 part ulner nerve recovery test. My hand is now red and black.
