DESCRIPTION OF WORK
At My First Appt. I found him to be arrogant, but I gavem the benefit of he doubt and allowed him to inject my back, but I thought he was going to do the Bursa (hip) as my most urgent complaint was Paraformis(sp) ...which makes your hips verrry painful. Anyway he did what HE wanted do. Then he placed a Tens unit on my back and told me to go watch TV for a bit, and "we will see how that goes" ...It went awful, it was sending sciatic pain down my leg and burning pain in my back. He was up front talking to his desk girl, so I walked up and told him about the tens unit hurting, and he said "DOES it REALLy" with a sarcastic tone. Also, he claims to be able to manage meds for those who are on pain meds for Chronic pain. I have been on Chronic pain meds for 5 years, and when I arrived I was asked for a urine sample (which pain Docs do for the purpose of making sure you are medicating as prescribed). He told me HE doesn't prescribe meds and I should ask another Doctor to do it for me. He had no apparent objection to my being on meds, he just didn't want to be the one to prescribe them, which is INSANE, because he is the PAIN DOCTOR!! Anyway, back to the tens unit, he did turn it down for me halfway thru the treatment but ALSO halfway thru treatment he comes out the door waves and says "Goodbye Everyone" and wheels his little bag out the door and Adios Doctor!! In the MIDDLE OF MY TREATMENT HE LEFT.....I WON'T GO Back!! I am in INCREASED PAIN FROM HIS INJECTIONS AND NERVE STIMULATING EXPERIMENT....I'd call him and tell him about it BUT I've heard his response to that before!! What an awful Experience.If you're looking for a Miracle Worker for your Back or whatever hurts, don't look to him.
