Let me just say that you are paying a doctor for a service. If he/she cannot provide that service to your satisfaction then time to fire the one you have and hire a new one (and I'm a nurse). Trust me these guys are not really smarter and so they had a couple more years in school than the rest of us but, that doesn't change the situation. Someone that abuses power deserves to be put in their place. So, go get you a compassionate doctor that cares about making you feel like living life again. Sending positive thoughts your way. :) Sincerely,
