Patient Comments (1)
in West Linn, OR |
Dr Tongue saw me for hip pain. He was uncaring and dismissive. After telling me that even though my hip was bone on bone and I had been advised 2 years prior to have the hip replaced that his recommendation was to go home-lose 40 pounds-take steroids and if I was still experiencing pain in 4 months to see him again. A subsequent MRI showed that my hip was fractured and the surgeon who ultimately replaced my hip said that he respectfully disagreed with Dr Tongue's diagnosis.
