      He was quite concerned about having me tell him my occupation. I asked why everyone kept asking about that and he said he needs to knee. He then told me it was foolish not to want to put that down. Then he said that he's a surgeon and if he operates he needs to know to restore me to my job. At this point he had not even looked at my hand to see what the problem was. He then said I needed to see a different type of Doctor.
