I too had the EXACT same experience as Michelle had.....word for word!! Waited 1.5 hours to see him. I tried to ask questions also and felt like I was bothering him. I did go for the shots and they didn't work, had a follow-up with him and he just gave me medication. I asked him if there was anything I could do (exercises etc) or things I shouldn't do and he just chuckled and said do what you want to do. Needless to say, I have not been back and am seeking other professionals.

My experience was very poor. It was the first time meeting with this doctor, who I felt was very dismissive. He explained nothing, would not look at me, told the next step was a shot and that was it no other information and then was sending me to someone else for the shot. I asked if i could ask some questions and he said sure as he was dicating my appointment in front of me. I felt I was just another number, he did not care and left there very upset, would not recommend him to anyone.

Waited two hours to see him! When he came in doesn't communicate well and doesn't look at you! Talks in his dictation device ,and doesn't explain things very good! Left crying when he said I wasn't a candidate for surgery with no reason why! Have two bulging discs and in constant pain!
