Dr Bede is the best Dr for me . He listens and he understands what I am saying and it's not easy I had a stroke in 2009 talking can be very hard for me; understanding me can be difficult..

He refused to help me with my severe pain from what he told me was FAI, bone spurs, and osteoarthritis. Instead he spent 15 minutes lecturing me about nutritional choices and said if I just lose weight I will feel better.

I have been seeing him for about a year now and though Im in mega pain and need a knee replacement he is putting it off. He told me to suck it up and deal with the pain today. that is not what i would expect from a dr who is supposed to care about his patients.
