My experience with Dr. Li was disturbing. I came in with cd's showing damaged vertebrae in my neck from 2 years ago. I was experiencing numbness in my arms, a tremor in my hand, and dizziness in certain positions almost daily. Not only did he refuse to take new pictures, he refused to look at old ones. He said he wanted to make his own diagnosis. He wasn't there to argue and I could leave if I wanted. (Quote). He was willing to let me leave with those symptoms. Condescending, rude, zero empathy

Dr. Li is one of the most pompous, condescending, compassionless Dr.'s I've ever had the misfortune to deal with in my life. I don't know if he was speaking to me in that manner because I'm a woman? Any question I had regarding treatment he seemed offended, like I was questioning his expertise. How dare I be proactive about my own health?! When he answered my questions he would say my name first, like he was scolding me! This guy has a serious God complex and shouldn't be working in pain mngmt!
