I was given two options for my knee,partial replacement or stem cell Therapy. Insurance does not cover this. I had therapy done and whenever I would ask when I would know if it took, all he would do was ask what my pain level was. I do not want replacement and am going to seek help elsewhere.

The ONLY options that were given to me were two different surgeries for my knee. He did not ask if I had been doing any home type of care to help the issue. X-rays were taken in the office and he sent me for an MRI. He is arrogant and did not offer to do anything to help with my pain. I went...Read More
