Arrogant & Rude

I saw Dr. Root for the first tim after my PCP retired, original PCP had been treating me for severe asciatica. Dr. Root barely looked t me when he came in, flipped through my chart & said that he doesn't prescribe pain meds, if I want those, I need to go back to my own small town. He did order an MRI, his nurse told me it was clear, later learned that it showed a bulging disc & nerve cyst. He & his staff are rude & arrogant.
