I had been travelling to Fargo for back injections for three years and had always had a good experience. When I learned there was no a doctor in Bemidji who did them I decided to try him. I checked in at 730 am for my injection and didn't get into the procedure room until after 930. During the injection I had a problem. My heart rate dropped below 30 and I had to get atropine and other meds. After I came around I could tell the needle was in my nerve I couldn't lie flat on the table and Dr Geyser was yelling at me to do so. I pleaded with him to remove the needle and he ripped it out of my back, hurled it and his gloves into the garbage, made a statement about wasting the injection and walked out. I w a d unable to stand afterward and couldn't leave until well after 2 pm. If took a few days to get back to my normal. I had no follow up from The doctor or his staff and went back to Fargo for injections, where the whole process always took less than 5 minutes.
