Very thorough. Most impressive was his willingness and recommendation to see if my symptoms would abate on their own without prescribing medication. He stated, "I'm not sure what I am treating and do not want to prescribe something for pain without knowing exactly what it is." He recommended scheduling a follow up appointment for further review if needed.
