I have an injury that I have had for two years. I began seeing him about a year and a half ago and have only actually seen him twice(first visit and last visit).I had to see his PA all the other times.My foot is still in Chronic pain and it seems surgery has an 89% success rate for my issue. Issue is still there and during my last visit he said he would not operate because of MRI findings,pain is still there and I walk with a limp. I have multiple X-Rays with his office that show the cause.
