My emergency room experience with Dr. Fortenberry was horrible. I was 8 months pregnant when he told me it wasn't possible for me to have Sciatic Pain During Pregnancy. He was clueless to what could have been the source of my leg pain but in fact that's what my diagnosis was. (I was not diagnosed by Dr. Fortenberry) He said he was unexplained knee pain and that I just needed to wrap it up and take Tylenol for 10 days. I wish I would have requested a different doctor that day.
