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 actually listening to me and watching me move. I had an injured shoulder that Dr. Comisar at Grant did PT and medicated to fix the source of my pain. Best is anything but BEST.
