Saw Dr. only twice in a yr ... always scheduled with the PA . Dr.had to teach PA how to give hip injections. Was put on Cenbalta misspelled , was not working so PA kept increasing dose until I got so sick. Intestinal flair up so bad it took mo.s to get over....They never helped me... Although I think the Dx I was given, is correct .But they never helped me...I think the Dr. is prob a good Dr, BUT way to many patients to give good care. Nasty lady in front office.Rude.
