Would not order a MRI for my rotater cup injury unless I would have surgery. Had the same problem on my left shoulder a few years ago even worse. My Mesa Dr. Ordered a MRI and said he could operate but agreed I do physical therapy first. It worked never had another problem. Maybe the doc was having a bad day, but I will not go back.

Unhelpful, rude, arrogant. Does not explain things well (if at all) Does not go over options..Seems like he just doesn't care! In his eyes you most certainly are just a paycheck not a patient.
