Doctor told me I shouldn't be having the pain I was having. He was agitated by me and made me embarrassed I even called to make an appointment to be seen. He told me "He didn't need to be my hero." Not sure what that was all about. I was told at the initial visit that if I had a problem I should call. Apparently making an appointment was something I should not have done. The whole appointment was humiliating.

I had maybe 5 minutes with doctor who told me to stay away spine surgery which I didn't require and he was referring me to a doctor of physical therapy. That was it. I asked a question about my trainer and was told to ask the next doctor.
