I feel like I am not being respected or heard. I had seen another UPMC doctor previously who totally dismissed me and was extremely rude. I went to another doctor on the advice of my PCP and he was very helpful and sent me to Pain Management. He then left his practice so I had no doctor which is why I went to Dr. Kaufmann. I feel like my chart is "marked" like I'm a doctor shopper or something and I am not being listened to nor explained things. But Dr. Kaufmann did agree to another MRI and some possible treatments but it seemed to be only after I really pressed to have my questions answered and things explained. If I didn't advocate for myself, I would be dismissed, I believe.
