I saw Dr McMaster in January of this year where he proceeded to tell me my only long term option was a knee joint. My fianc? scheduled her vacation time off (that affected over 200 employees) to take care of me. Dr MacMaster had NOT read my notes from back in January and as a result took issue with two personal issues even though I had been 100%,honest at the time and as a result cancelled the procedure 2 weeks out. He's too old and should retire if he cannot read plain English. God you are not!
