Almost incompetent

This doctor diagnosed me with several painful conditions yet refused to treat the pain involved. Also made sure my pain was not treated by OTHER physicians outside his practice. I guess he had a problem with seeing me out of pain. He never followed through with tests to uncover the root of the disorders either. Thankfully I have a better doc who does care to treat pain and also find out what's causing it.
