Once a great dr who has gone downhill

There was a point in time where regardless of the excessive wait time, billing issues & lack of follow up, that I never would have dreamed of seeing another physician for interventional pain management. The past year has been awful as he's gone from a kind, compassionate doctor to one who shows up when he feels like it, never returns messages even ones of an urgent nature and seemingly couldn't care less.
