Do not see this doctor. He promised follow up medication if I needed it and when I called his practice at 12:30 pm a Friday they said I'd have to wait until Monday with major pain in my dominant hand because he had properly charter the medication he agreed to make available to me. The practice claimed they had no way of getting a hold of a doctor or nurse to review my simple tendonitis diagnosis and call something which is entirely unacceptable.

In 2001 I tore the medial (inside) meniscus in my left knee. Dr Magee performed arthroscopy & removed it. Afterwards, he had to drain my knee 3x & couldn't figure out what was causing the fluid or pain I had. It turns out Dr M didn't pay attention that I was bow-legged. When he removed the meniscus I ended up w/bone-on-bone. The result has been arthritis & a degenerative joint. An osteotomy was needed & should have been done instead. To this day I am suffering w/the resulting mistake he made.
