    in New Orleans, LA |
    I was seeing this doctor and on my third visit I came in with MRI results. After "looking at them" he came in the room and told me everything was fine. Fortunately for me, I had someone else look at them and I knew they weren't "fine". After I showed him the picture of my MRI on my phone, he told me I had a bulging disc and sciatica (which I already knew before going in from the MRI tech). I am fairly certain he didn't even look at the MRI. Prepare to wait at least 1 hour after appt time.
