worse dr. visit ever!!

This was the worse dr. Visit I have ever had. I am one month post op from slap tear 2 surgery. Explained to him that everything was okay, but Sunday I did something and pain was so intense. He told me that I did nothing, and asked to lift up my arms. When I could not lift to 90 degrees, he proceeded to lift my arm with excruciating pain. And told me that there was no physical reason that I cannot lift my arm. Told me to close my eyes and open them. When I did he said see you can do that, you can lift your arm. I tried to tell him that the physical therapists were concerned because I was having so much pain and was not progressing. He did not want to listen to me. Instead gave me a cortizone shot. I have never had intense pain with the shots before. But this time, it hurt so bad I screamed. Asked about work, he proceeded to tell me I could not do my job, but he could not say I could not work. Because I had 2 legs and a left arm that work. He said that he would see me in 6 weeks. He treated me like a child. I have never left a dr. In tears before. If at all possible I will not return to him. I would not recommend him at all.
