in Columbus, OH |
I went with shoulder pain. He looked at my age and told them to xray my neck. He "as expected" saw some arthritis in my neck. Brought his team of interns in an expounded about how he knew this to be the case. TRUE, BUT WRONG!! Even his own PT specialist started treating me more for shoulder after...more
