Awful treatment

He did not listen to the physical therapist or nurse when they suggested things, he did not care about how long I had suffered my injury,(4 months), just kept telling me to get another job-like there's a job out there that isn't repetitive and/or has the level of insurance cost that I need. I am very disappointed with him, he said I would not like surgery-then I told him about the 2 surgeries I had-one an open hysterectomy. I can handle a surgery. Anything to get back to a normal life, no more copays or medicines to mask my injuries instead of take care of them. FYI also do not claim a work comp injury at work, it will get denied no matter where you work, just type in IL worker's compensation for more info. This doctor wasted my time, took my money, and did nothing for me. I give him an F.
