in louisville, ky |
Had a EMG this morning and was completely freaked out by the idea of it all. While not completely pain free, it was absolutely not worth the worry I put myself through. Dr Alt's demeanor was pleasant and put me at ease. He did not rush me through the test and allowed me to take a break. Not even...more
