I have issues with my back for ten years now and he made me feel like I was lying about the pain my issues cause me. The first doctor I seen looked at my X Ray's and noticed narrowing and Arthritis in my lower back. I have had two herniated discs and been to the emergency room 6 times in three years, but when Dr Thangamani looked at my X Ray's he said he didn't see why I was in so much pain and if somebody looked at my x-rays they would say I was lying. Wow, that made me feel horrible.
Terraance, thank you for sharing your feedback. We're sorry to hear about your experience. Patient satisfaction is very important to us and we'd like to look into this situation further. If you are willing, please contact us at info@dupagemd.com with more details.
