This doctor did not care about my conditions. He was also unprofessional and rude.

He did not seem interested in my knee. I was the one asking him questions but he was really "whatever" about it. I was supposed to get approved for MRI but nobody even called the insurance company. When I called, Iwas told that someone is working on it. It's been two weeks, still now news.
