Patient Comments (1)
in Stafford Springs, CT |
Time to retire. I have a painful neck condition which makes it almost impossible to hold my head straight. Dr Nova was aware of this condition. He physically grabbed my head and I asked him what the hell he was doing. He said I had to keep my head straight for the exam. I explained how painful it was for him to do that and told him not to do it again. He later had me put my head down. As soon as I did he grabbed my head and whipped it upright, He was testing for vertigo, I believe.
