Patient Comments (2)
Batesville, IN |
While very kind, certainly not thorough. Diagnosed me with age related arthritis - gave me a cortisone injection, put me through physical therapy - never did an MRI - nothing worked - my last appointment he simply said my issues were nothing more than age related - well - turns out I have a tear in my medial meniscus - had to have my Chiropractor order the MRI - honestly - totally disappointed in the lack of care and concern with getting to the bottom of the problem. Going elsewhere for care.
