I saw Dr. Gilmore for severe pain and instability in my left knee this past spring and he told me that there was nothing wrong with my knee that I just had a border line personality disorder and needed to be put on Wellbutrin. WOW, not only is he and ortho doctor he is also able to diagnosis mental disorders! The MRI that I had done shortly after this appointment proves you wrong and my general practice doctor refused to sent me for a mental evaluation or put me on Wellbutrin as you suggested.
