Simpsonville, SC |
Is as sent to Dr. Conwisar thru workers compensation. They had previously had me see other Drs. I had no option to choose. I did not like the Dr. His bedside manor was horrible more often than not I left his office in tears due hie degrading me. Even my nurse case manager stated I should not be treated that way. Waited for hours while at me appointments. He was always grumpy and never smiled. He accused me of Dr. Shopping to get the results I wanted. I only wanted to be treated like a human.
