Patient Comments (1)
in Halifax, VA |
Many complaints but character limit prevents detail. In sum: 1) Almost put an unsterile needle in my back during LP - was stopped by the nurse 2) Refused to answer questions at initial visit under guise that it might make me nervous, but then, based on my MRI, accused me of using cocaine a lot - I never had. A 2nd Dr looked at my MRI & said there was no basis for that statement 3) He refused to summarize his findings in a letter to the insurance company, though I offered to pay for his time.
