I would have to write an essay for three visits that were unproductive. I had fallen (I'm 59) and he told me he couldn't do anything for me After our first appointment, to which I had brought my husband to sit with me, even hubby said, when we were home, that I should see another doctor and get another opinion. Good luck getting an idea how to take care of yourself. Dr. and staff just make sure you have insurance.
