Patient Comments (1)
After his 5 minute exam I was told there's nothing wrong with me just overusing my hands. This to spite that my regular physician, the orthopedic surgeon I was trying to replace because of difficulty getting appointments, and my chiropractor telling my I have tendinitis. The exam amounted to a few quick prods or my hands and wrists asking does this hurt? Five minutes after seeing the doctor before I even got out of the building my wrist and hands began to hurt. Six hours later the pain is worse
