And don't feel alone, I've been dismissed, yelled at, told to get a different dr., etc. It would be like going to a store to look for a dress and them telling your, "No, I'm not going to help you, happy hunting." Get a LLDr. asap and don't waste your time energy or money on anyone who treats you cr$%^y.
The only other "industry" that operates like this is the airlines.... they take your $$$$ and then can screw you for days while you wait for a non-existant flight.... or keep you on the tarmac for 11+ hours.
It's like drs. have no idea that WE PAY THEM FOR A SERVICE - they are NOT doing us a "favor".
