bad choice of doctors.

He operated on my hamstrings, cut 2 loose. Said he had done 4 surgeries like he was going to do on me to stop my pain. On my last visit with him I told him that I hurt worst. He said well I have done 2 surgeries like yours, 1 was good and 1 was bad, and now you.. Wow if he had told me the truth I would not have had him to operate on me. Very bad doctor.
