One Star

I went to Dr. Alston because of lyme disease. I have been sick for over a year with it. Recently received an antibiotic that was supposed to cure me, but not long after finishing it some symptoms started returning. So I was referred to him. Anyway, the day i went to see the doctor i had been feeling like an elephant was sitting on my chest as well as a number of other aches and pains. I had left an hour open to talk to him like the paper suggested. I was taken in promptly and when he came in he was nice enough and asked me a few questions. He checked me over and listened to my lungs. Promptly told me all i had was a cold and i would be fine. Then proceeded to tell me 3 more times that i didn't need antibiotics and that my lyme had been cured and i needed to pursue different avenues. I told him I didnt want drugs i want answers all 3 times and cut me off while i was still trying to talk and hurried out the door. He wasn't in with me for 30 min! Come to find out, 2 days later i was in the ER with pneumonia. Although he was nice in the way he brushed me off. I think it was rude of him to assume that the only reason I was there was for more drugs not answers to my illness. And to tell me I wasnt sick even though I was clearly having trouble breathing just blows my mind. He def did not have my best interest in mind, and he made me doubt that i was even as sick as i was!!
