Office got me in earlier when I started to experience more pain. The doctor seemed competent and polite. She wasn't overly social or talkative, but sometimes that's better.
If she offers you the cortisone shot, you should take it instead of trying to tough it out. She said most people feel that 20 seconds of pain is worth 6 weeks pain free and she was right. I'm not going to lie, it hurt so bad that I thought I was going to cry, but by the next morning, I wasn't in any pain.
I had mentioned an additional problem, but it wasn't addressed and after the shot, I was too distressed to bring it up again. Also, it took about three days for the office to schedule my appointment. So, that's why my review isn't 5 stars.
