The appointment felt pointless, he was rushing and didn’t seem to help what was wrong. Still in pain till date, a self diagnosis was probably more ideal than going there.

At first Ibvbwas impressed how he started treating the ganglion cyst right away poking and prodding a large needle at it. After all that pain the next day the cyst was still in my finger. No I would not go tothis doctor again for he mistreated me as a patient.
