    First off his staff was rude. I was in so much pain l felt like they thought l was a druggy just wanting pain pills. He diagnosed me with a bulging disk. Shots n my back & physical therapy for months of pain. Bottom line after telling him l felt like it was n my hip. He did a MRI on my hip & it was stage 4 cancer & he didnt have the nerve to tell me he messed up so he referred me to a orthopedic Dr. That Dr then referered me to a oncologist. This Dr ruined my life as lam still battling cancer.
