      Spoke to me about politics during a steroid injection; was awkward as I'm at the opposite end of the political spectrum from him and as he had a 4-inch needle in me it didn't feel right to ask him to change the topic. He would also bill for 'long' visits when my appointments with him would be less than ten minutes just to obtain a refill of medicine. I found him to be somewhat creepy and after three treatments found a different provider. He did follow the correct course for initial treatment.
