I was told by Dr. King that he would only be working at the office 1 day a week and it would be difficult in the future getting an appointment with him. He did give me a list of doctors that could treat me via ultra sound for my wrist. Was very disappointing. I need to see him again because cortisone shot he gave me in a different area from last year is not working.
