I saw DR about 2x. Offered pain pills and shots. Got 4 shots. Found out there's a 4 / year limit. I always saw the PA. I only saw the DR. for shots. I fell and hurt my back, saw the PA he ordered an MRI. Staff never got my results. PA said they weren't ready but they were. PA gave me more pills...more
