If I could give less than one star I would. I had my first appointment yesterday and I felt like I was an inconvenience to his day. When he heard the word Fibromyalgia I saw him tune out. I have other conditions as well but I certainly found a doc who doesn't believe Fibromyalgia exists. After suffering from severe chronic pain for almost 10 years I need doctors who actually want to help me improve my life, not make it worse. If you are referred to this doc ask for a different provider.
