Patient Comments (1)
in Linton Indiana |
He was a good doctor before he signed on with IU. He made the comment one day that since he signed on with IU that he was just there to draw his paycheck. I know the new laws for pain medications and most doctors won't explain them to you because it is more work for their staff. Dr. Worster also made that comment to me one day. My mother went through hell with pain and he refused to help her with it. She is gone now but a doctor needs compassion. He has none.
