    I came to see this doctor after being cared for at Scripps- waited close to an hour for him - took my water proof cast off to show him my left hand and pinky - said looks good- never took new xrays - said all was good-turns out it wasn't healing and scar tissue later -now needs surgery -when he saw the hand it was two times the normal size & pinky tendon screwed up from the fall-THANKS -THE WORST DOCTOR-

    He was condescending and dismissive. At no point did I feel like a person to him. When I asked what if the steroid shot doesn't work he brushed it off and said it would. It did not work, and the shot made my entire hand hurt, not just my thumb.
