After just a few minutes into listing my symptoms and concerns, Mr. Chen bruskly cut me off and asked why I was there. I was abundantly clear I was there because it appeared I had dislocated clavicle and wanted it resolved. When I reminded him of the reason for the consult, he impatiently informed me I should be in no pain (although this was not so), told me there was nothing that could be done, and insisted it was something I'd just have to live with. Very bizarre interaction.
