I've had migratory bilateral leg aches for 6 years. I also have RA & lumbar problems which muddied the diagnostic waters. I've seen 2 rheumatologists, a neurologist, and a lower extremity ortho trying to get relief. MRIs, X-rays, & an EMG. All had piled the symptoms into sciatica; Dr. Witmer dx'd then treated me for trochanteric bursitis & lumbar disease. My leg aches are gone! If your Doc can't find an answer and doesn't bother with an exam- see one who will bother! Thanks Dr. Witmer!!!

Schedules patients at the same time then you end up waiting for this arrogant Dr. 1 to 2 hours. Then sees you for 5minutes! Worse Dr I ever met. Find another Dr. You will know you deserved a lot better.
