How can a doctor determine you don't need pain medicine from looking at your medical record alone, but never examining you or talking to the doctor that did a hour long examination in the same practice? Told me to go to medical aid or the emergency room. Been dealing with doctors for 30+ years and never had one that disregarded how you feel and say what the other doctor said you needed 3 hours earlier was not what you needed. Disgraceful! Avoid by all means. Many other options!!!!
