in Hixson, TN |
From the staff to Dr. Bruce himself, my mother was treated dismissively and patronized. It was evident they viewed her as just a stupid old woman not worth their time. She was given no instructions on how to treat her injured knee and just ushered out the door since it was "mostly arthritis",...more
