I had an appointment on Feb 4th 2019 ,. I same day my dog was ran a killed by a car . I told office what happened , sent them a proof of person suing me for $2800 damage to foot bumper my dog was killed with , but Prunskis office still asked me pay $50 for non cancellation of appointment .Of course I never paid that but now Dr Prunskis office destroyed my credit by reporting $50 non payment for a miss cancelation of an appointment with a col Needles to say service with doctor Prunskis was deplorable . He refused do a surgery on me for a neuro stimulator cause was not profitable to him , did not prescribed continuous medication treatment as he said they don't do that !!!!!! They are PAIN CLINIC !!!! what he is talking about.So if is not profitable what you go there with ,he will find a reason refuse treatment . I am a paralyzed person with 28 fractures in my body after a motorcycle accident suffering from neuropathic pain also . Am I not perfect candidate for such clinic ???????!!!!!
