He was very concerned about getting to the problem and when I said thank you he said don't thank me yet not until I get you pain free I thought that was really nice

Went for an emg. He explained the procedure as he was doing it. Afterwards I was unable to get any answers to my questions ************************************************************************************************************ Just said my surgeon or primary would handle it. I have no clue what it all meant. While he was curtious while doing the procedure, I was just dismissed afterwards. I'm not sure why I was put through this test with so little concern for my physical pain and what options were open to help remedy this.

He was good - just some advice for him - He asked me "how young I am" - why not ask - "how old are you" - when you phrase it his way - he makes am reference to YOUR OLD AGE - just weird to me - I am okay with being older - that's not a problem.
