The staff was great but the doctor got offended when I said I needed an MRI and denied to give itto me and said we have to wait 6 weeks to get it. I didn’t want to wait 6 weeks to know what exactly was wrong with my shoulder. Just by physically examining my shoulder he told the reason why. I need the MRI as soon as possible

Good visit. Unfortunately, I was advised that I need a different type of specialist; therefore, I still don't know what iswrong. Frustrating!
