Would have liked a little more time to talk to the doctor. And also have him look at my knee. Where is he did not look at it and I felt a little rushed. otherwise I'm content. Would like to know more of what's happening and what procedure I was supposed to take I had to call and ask the nurse what I should do in the meantime to improve my leg.

When I came to the office it was to see about a broken leg hip type injury that happened a year ago and I was told to put on shorts which I did and that I was taken down to X-Ray when the doctor came in. He never wants even touched me to exam and the leg the hip to tell to look for what I was telling him about. All he did was look at the x-rays and say you know, it look like it it healed really well. So that's it.

When I initially called and got an appointment, it was a month away. I called about a week later, spoke to the provider's nurse, and explained my need to be seen sooner because of increased pain. The nurse moved up my appointment by three weeks and called in a prescription for me. During my appointment I treated with my second cortisone injection and other treatment options were discussed and insurance pre-approval was initiated.
