Patient Comments (1)
in Wittenberg, WI |
I could not move my arm up or down after mishap at work.Dr Brearley refused to give me an mri at my request but instead suggested I go to physical therapy for 6 weeks.I did not undestand why he would send me to physical therapy when he had no idea what was wrong without any mri results.So I went for second opinion got a mri which showed a tear of my rotator cuff and am now scheduled to have it repaired.This guy would have just wasted about two months of my life and tear would have gotten worse.
