Made a post op error starting a cascade that ended up leaving me with chronic pain. He doesn't know if I ever walked again. One time made me wait til the last appointment time, despite the fact I was on time for my 3:45 pm appointment. Then was putting his coat on and packing his brief case, obviously not interested in my care. He was done dealing with me.
