Patient Comments (4)

Had mri's done on both feet and apparently it is just too much to ask for the results or what the doctor thinks. I don't think I am being unreasonable since it has been a month. I guess they pick and choose who they want to work with, and that is fine, but how about just come out and say so instead...more

Office visit about three minutes. It seems to me like he did not care about my condition.
