because I was a difficult patient and rude, and he was very understanding to my condition and the pain I was feeling with the frustration it took to finally find out what was going on with me, only he was the last doctor on the list of doctors I had seen, who finally could help me after over 6 months of waiting and no one knowing what to do about my situation or what was causing it.
