I am a mother of 3, two of which have autism. I started haveing neck pain and after MRI results was called by Dr. Frizzels office. I was told that "Dr wanted to talk to you about your results. After a 3 and 1/2 hour drive, he saw me, was reluctant to answer questions and now thinks I might have carpal tunnel syndrome and thentold me to " Have a nice trip home" After a 10 minute appointment. I have worries of why my hands are going numb and neck pain . never had issues with my writs! Cold man.
