Patient Comments (3)
in Enterprise, AL |
Had my 1st appointment with him before my surgery. He just didn't seem like he wanted to believe me when I was telling him about my pain and where I was hurting; based on his reactions and boys language. He knew the pain I was in. He asked if I wanted to go a month and use a splint and see how it would be or surgery ? I said surgery to relieve the pain. Visit after surgery I've expressed how much pain I'm still in. He gave me an antibiotic for infection and a powerful nerve R w/ no relief.
