Set my broken wrist...later put a pin in it. Steered me to choose a less effective surgery and continually told me my wrist was fine even long after the procedure. Very condescending, patronizing and dismissed the pain I had and that the break was not correctly repaired. Anyone who sees the wrist bone jutting out understands why I still have a weak and sore outer wrist area. This was two years ago. I am soft spoken but I went back to tell him again and he said it was the basal joint arthritis that I was feeling, which is the thumb area and I have had that for years. I have always felt he should have corrected it and only get charged anesthesia, etc. It became clear I would have to sue and I hate that idea. He should have come up with a remedy rather than not admitting anything was wrong.
