Patient Comments (1)
in Houston TX |
Very disappointing I was scheduled for A steroid shot 3 weeks ago but was suddenly cancelled, I don't believe they actually tried to get it approved because I called my provider and was told they had no record of authorisation beings requested. No one has even called to follow up, or tell me anything. Well yes I'M still suffering and have no idea if all my efforts my MRI was wasted . With this kind of incompetence I would never let any one close with big needle.
