Patient Comments (1)
in Winona, MN |
Had me on a high dosage of Prednisone for a year, I asked him many times if it could possible be "another diagnosis". treatment didn't work so he referred me to Mayo, . the doctor knew what it was before he even looked at me from just my lab history at Kidney specialist of MN. Guess what? It was the other diagnosis that I thought it was....... GRRRRR a nice long term run with prednisone and just to find out it wouldn't have helped me. Not a good listener.
