Patient Comments (1)
Ft Myers, FL |
He is always concerned about my health and conditions of fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. I receive good medication management that helps to relieve symptoms and pain. He gives thorough exams for pain measurement. I feel his is a bit too tight-lipped as to his examination into thoughts and notes since he most often doesn't say anything to me. He writes his thoughts down often during the exam but doesn't say what they are. I have to ask what his findings are. And I don't even ask very often.
