I suffered a burst bursa. It became infected and he kept me on continuous antibiotics for several months. Causing severe hemorrhoid issues requiring subsequent surgery. Would not order MRI until I threatened to change Doctors. When he did, he filed with the workers comp carrier that the MRI was not work related, even though he knew it was and I had been referred to him by my employer for treatment under WC. > 1 yr collections agency trying to collect. MRI indicated surgery. Poor attitude.
