in Bangor, ME |
AMAZING! How many doctors will accept a new surgery on the day before vacation, late afternoon? Dr. SWARTZBAUGH that's who. I was in ER in need of immediate pain relief, I couldn't stand it a moment more. It had been about 10 days (1st ER visit I was sent home with Pain meds - which I told them I would not take- and Pred, which did NOTHING) This was ER visit #2 and I physically could not handle another day of the excruciating pain. Dr. Swartzbaugh fixed me! (ran out of review space!)
