Follow-up visit and referral

Dr. Pena referred me to a specalist, an ENT, for treatment of vertigo. I went to this ENT doctor for 9 weeks with no improvement but many test including a CT scan. A friend with similar problems went to a physical thearpist and was cured in one session. I called and then went to Dr. Pena's office to request a referral to the thearpist. He would not write me a referral without his seeing me in his office again. I left and will never see Dr. Pena again. I went to the thearpist without a "script" and was successfully treated in 4.5 min. My 9 weeks of vertigo was gone after 4.5 minutes of treatment.
