When you tell him over and over how much you suffer he does not hear you. Bedside manor needs work

After giving me muscle relaxants for excruciating pain he said there was nothing else he could do...he would still see me though...he has no compassion and doesn't care that some people react differently to procedures than others....I had to go to a new doctor start over again to get some relief...I should have picked up on him when I had to wait over an hour to see him at first appt...he wanted nothing to do with me when the going got rough...terrible experience...

I would be very careful about going to this Doctor based on incorrect information that he gave me. I went to him with what I suspected might be psoriatic arthritis - based on joint pain, psoriasis and extreme fatigue. On my initial visit he told me that extreme fatigue isn't a common complaint of psoriatic arthritis. I have since found out that this is completely false. I think he is set in his ways and may do damage in the long run from his lack of knowledge. Be careful!
