Let's start this off with, when you go to his office they make you sign/initial a form that says "we do not prescribe narcotics". I went to Dr.Balaji's office for my sleep/anxiety problems. Which he must not have heard as he talked over me every chance that I spoke. Here in my file in the online patient portal it says "Today's Diagnoses Include M54.5 Low back pain" In proper english that would be stated "LOWER BACK PAIN" Which clearly shows he was not listening to me, or doesn't understand
