Didn't seem experienced enough in my condition, and won't really listen. I think he has only a one-track mind?

Provider was inept, and quite frankly should no longer be practicing. Working in the medical field, I was shocked at how he conducted the exam with such carelessness. How he hasn't been sued for negligence is astounding.
