Very Painful Experience

I have had out patient medical procedures for over a decade in Anchorage. This experience was so shockingly painful. Something went wrong with the sedation and I seemed to be rushed into it before the sedation had a chance to take effect. So I was fully awake and nerve sensitive throughout. This has never happened to me before with other clinics. I had to complete the procedure to the end. Their seemed to be a lack of compassion and oddly there was computer being used for what appeared personal internet in the procedure room. I don't want to go back to get the results. I have never had that kind of pain before in an out patient clinic.
