Don't bother

Terrible. Treated me like a drug seeker. I am a nurse and very aware of drug seeking behavior non of which I exhibited. I don't even take pain meds. 4 years later I finally get a real diagnosis which is all I wanted. I now do injections and have a diagnosis. Of all the physician's seen Dr. Waller was the worst.
