Katrina,

I understand how frustrating it can be when your shoulder symptoms keep you from sleeping at night.  One of the hardest things about being a doctor is trying to find a balance between spending enough time with each patient, getting every patient in who wants to be seen, and remaining on schedule so that other patients aren't waiting.  I am fortunate that...

Patient Comments (1)
in Altoona, PA |
I have been a patient of his for years. He used to be great. Now I have to wait a month to get in when my shoulder is swelling more and more every day, therapy is making it worse and I'm only sleeping 3-4 hours a night. I was told by his nurse to go somewhere else if it's that urgent. Unexceptable!! Then when you do see him he's in and out of the room within minutes. You're so rushed. I'm very disappointed is the decline in the quality of care. I used to highly recommend him, not anymore!
