Had to call twice begging in pain to even have them call me back. Then told to take Tylenol. If Tylenol worked, I wouldn't have called begging for them to do something. I'm not looking for drugs, just to have the hurting stop. These people don't care! Avoid them!

After months of treatment he did not find or diagnose the source of my pain after a work related fall/injury. He said he couldn't do anything to help me and to just live with it. Then he released me back to work, still in a lot pain, with some pain meds. Seems to be more of an advocate for Worker's Compensation than for the patient.
