Waited an hour in the waiting room and then another hour in exam room, Doctor came in looked at X-rays, but not MRI we had brought, didn't ask questions left and came back handed a script for a $2000 brace. Very little communication and still no answers for what's wrong with my foot. Total waste of my time!
