I was frustrated, insulted & had no answers when I left his office. I have genetic osteoarthritis, which is advanced for my age. I was awaiting hip a replacement & experiencing sciatic pain. I wanted to know if the nerve issue would go away after replacement or if it would be a neurology issue we'd need to tackle post op. Douglas accused me of being depressed & wanted to prescribe depression meds. I was depressed bc I couldn't move and in chronic PAIN! Took 6 weeks to get in & get zero results!
