I waited over a week to get into this doctor. I got a call a hour and a half before my doctors appt today and the doctor cancelled my appointment. I have a dislocated thumb and needed to be seen. Now another 2 week wait because the doc wanted to have a long weekend.
My experience with this Doctor is the worst I have ever experienced. He has no bedside manners. I went there for an opinion on back surgery and because I wasn't saying the exact words he wanted to hear he got frustrated. When he went to check how far I could bend forward and side to side he put his thumbs in the area of my back which hurt and was sore from driving 50 mins. from my home to see him. Before I could tell him why I hurt he got angry, said that surgery wont help me among other words.
