Neck Pain

Dr Palmitier builds you up only to let you down. He talks as if he knows what's wrong with you and he can fix the problem. He's nothing but a Big Talker leaving you with broken promises. I wouldn't recommend him to anybody. All he does is cost you money and makes false promises.

Absolutely abominal follow up to office visit by the staff/MD. Left office with verbal assurance that I would hear more the next day. -Tuesday. On Friday I made a personal visit to office to get report, Handed a sheet with Dr's dictation and a promise from the Nurse that I would receive a call. Friday evening at 7:00 pm still no response. What gives?

Poor bedside manner for people in pain

Felt like doctor didn't listen, ask questions, or explain why he was ordering tests. Overall, left office feeling less hopeful than before I went in.
