My 6/15/2017 visit was simply the last straw. He refused to run the same x-rays as a prior visit (5/15) and this was the follow up visit. I was both stunned and outraged. He claimed he didnt want to run the full series to save me "the radiation" and that based on his years of experience he was sure the finger was healed. In the first visit he did what was normal, he showed me the xrays and where the two injururies were. One this visit he did not visually r and refused to run matching xrays

I waited over an hr to see him & he spent less than 5 min with me. It's a good thing I have health insurance and only had a co-pay. He wasn't even worth the $40 co-pay. What a complete waste of my time and money spent to see him. I could've found out more researching online. In fact I got absolutely no helpful information at all from him. He might as well of been just a stranger off the street sitting with me for 5 minutes. He was sarcastic & not patient friendly. Don't waste your time.
