Doctor seemed like a nice fellow upon greeting, however he quickly came across as apathetic apart from relaying MRI results and stating that I was doomed to arthritis. I tried to provide a history of events surrounding my injury so that he could perhaps better interpret the results, even getting up to display how my mobility had been affected, to which he turned without observing and said, "oh, you think you might want rehab?" He was clearly disinterested and I felt rushed out of the door.
