Crappy. Did not examine child, did not allow child to provide input on symptoms. Poor bedside manner. Shame after waiting months to get in. Wish we had never gone to UAB

She was short and did not do everything that I felt needed to be done. She had a horrible bedside manner and insisted that my pain would be better if I just exercised, as someone who is a dancer and exercises regularly I can tell you my pain in not better due to exercising.
