While waiting for the doctor to come into the exam room I could hear him clearly yelling at his staff in the hallway. Sadly he brought his attitude into the room with him. I caught him in multiple lies. On my first visit with him after I was told I needed a knee replacement, I questioned the safety. He clearly stated he had never heard of anyone having difficulties with a knee replacement. He literally said it never happens. He was visibly agitated that I dared question him. Knee surgery problems are actually quite common and rejection does happen. I simply wanted to know what the options were should I reject the knee implant. At the next appointment after his argument in the hallway he entered the room with his attitude and he blatantly told me he never told me I needed a knee replacement... after he and another doctor at the previous appointment told me I had no other options. I was even sent for metal allergy testing so that we could proceed with the knee replacement. He said I would just have to live in pain and to deal with it. He says after knee surgery you will still have pain and it does not improve your Mobility. He said people do not get knee replacements to improve their mobility or reduce their pain. Seems to me that is exactly why people get knee replacements. When arthritis is so severe that you can no longer walk that is typically the option. He said he refuses to fix my knee. Even at this point, had he said he would fix it I would have refused. The attitude he took with me because he had a problem with someone else reduced my confidence greatly...and I don't like to be lied to
