Rudest doctor EVER!!!

I have never felt so belittled by a doctor in my whole life. I always feel rushed and he is sooo condescending. I have been suffering with back pain for almost a year. My MRI came back with so many problems yet all he prescribes is physical therapy. I have bulging discs, spurs hitting spine, stenosis, sciatica, etc. I suffer with consistent chronic pain. He refuses to give me pain meds. He tells me to take Motrin. I have to get pain meds from my primary who just gave me a new referral to go to another doctor because my primary now thinks that this doctor has obviously been milking my insurance company for almost a year.

Worst Specialist I've Ever Gone To

Todd Shatynski is the worst specialist I've ever gone to. He told me nothing was seriously wrong with me and that I had an anxiety disorder because my MRI was almost negative. I'd been in 6 months of near constant pain when I saw him, and I've now gone through 3 years of near constant pain. His diagnosis was ridiculous because there are a lot of problems that don't show up on an MRI. He shouldn't have even given me an MRI; a digital motion x-ray would have been more appropriate since I have all the signs of a ligament injury.
