McCord has no respect for his patients' time or money. His office reschedules appointments without notifying the patient, and he blows off appointments at the last minute--while the patient is waiting in the office! If he can't solve your problem easily, he will keep scheduling expensive, invasive tests until you are broke. He is quick to dismiss anything involving a woman's anatomy as a female problem that has nothing to do with the patient's messed-up spine. His office also lost my chart.
