Claimed that fibromyalgia is just tense muscles. Claimed that nobody has pain from L5 S1 disc degrading (ya right) and that my nerve pinch doesnt exist (my body disagrees). Just another doc that claims that everything is in my head (um no, nor can i control it when the pain wakes me at night). Total waste of my time and very patronizing. Told me my pain meds made me like a drunk driver. Don't recommend.
