Dr. Byrn jumped to conclusions and completely blew me off: I was actually very hesitant to consider surgery, but my Dr. encouraged me to go in for a consult and discuss the pros/cons. However, Dr. Byrn assumed I came in thinking surgery would solve all my problems, resisted any discussion as to how surgery MIGHT help as a PART of my overall treatment plan, and immediately dismissed me to consider surgery at future appointments with other Dr.'s... So what was the point of coming in and paying for a consult with him?!?
