The Dr did recognize that they had slinger the wrong elbow and corrected that. However regarding my knee which was so bad now I couldn't stand on it she decided not to treat it until she could see an MRI which she sent me downstairs to schedule. At that time the scheduler told me it would be 2 weeks before I could get an MRI. I couldn't get out of my wheelchair or walk so I had to go back to the ED. do 2 days at the clinic and still no treatment of my knee and now I'm unable to stand or walk

I started clearance for rotator cuff surgery which was suggested by an orthopedic surgeon outside your facility. Things were happening too fast so I requested an appointment for a second opinion. I got the appointment the same day 8/8/2020 and Dr Tejpar who referred me to Dr Sabesan the next week. She went over my MRI in detail and I decided surgery can wait.

Dr Tejpar took her time with me, and answered all my questions. She was prepared to discuss a holistic approach to my health, which is very important to me. Yay!
