Too busy to be thorough and honest

Dr. Babinski is overwhelmed with the # of patients he & his partners try to serve. After talking with 5 other people, (3 office staff) and 2 X-ray staff, he didn't take my painful right knee pain seriously. I had fallen and my right knee cap hit the edge of a brick on my steps hard. My Physical Therapy person said that my knee cap was "tracking to the left," but none of the 4 doctors I went to, including Dr. B, had figured this out. After 4 months, I still get aching, stabbing pains in the knee cap area, and have to use a cane for walking. I understand that I have arthritis, but this pain is not that. He never mentioned that I need to lose weight for the arthritis, nor did he mention the arthritis. He gave me no diagnosis. I guess one has to ask for that, and I will from now on.
