I asked my doctor if he also does PCP work because he's incredible. I felt listened to, cared about, safe, confident in his knowledge, like he has compassion but is also secure and confident in his knowledge. I loved how he had an idea of what my issue was but waited to give a diagnosis until there was sufficient diagnostic evidence and xrays were reviewed. He explained how my knees work and demonstrated with his hands. Several treatment options were presented and I was able to choose the ones that I wanted to do. We discussed contingencies if those didn't work. I felt my doctor's attention was fully with me during my appointment and not like he was in a rush to get to another patient or cross me off his list. The proposed treatments are indeed working and I was also impressed with his knowledge of the success rate of the vitamin just off the top of his head. I checked it out. He's right. I had a follow up yesterday to check on my progress and he very compassionately informed me that the speed of my progress (pretty steady but not especially rapid or miraculous) is the norm. I felt I had a better idea of what to expect after talking with him and felt comforted in the knowledge that this is a normal recover, though a little disappointed I'm in the "average" instead of miraculous category because I am really tired of being in pain and limited in my motions. Anyway, my doctor is phenominal and I wish I could go to him for every concern ever because he's the best doctor I've ever had. This man should be the industry standard.
