    Dr Perry gave the best explanation of the issue in terms one can understand. Quite possibly best Ive ever had. Pulled up my scans right in the room to review together. I didnt even have questions when he was done. Wow.

      I was very pleased with this visit. Dr. Perry inquired about my feelings regarding prior visits of trying rib manipulation (can't think of the exact procedure name) with Dr. Van Zyl, my prior pain levels, current standing of the issue, and what actions we can take in the future. He took the time to listen to my comments, and answer all of my questions or concerns. I was very satisfied upon leaving this appt.

      This was a very good experience. Both the medical student who initially talked to me and Dr. Perry were friendly, professional, took their time and answered all my questions. Very good about including me in the treatment decisions.

      The resident was more involved & helpful than *Dwan Perry was, unfortunately. *Perry told me to "just continue" with my PT even though my shoulder is worse than before; he seemed to think that the pain I was having was just from exercising. ( I know the difference b/w good pain & bad). When I asked whether I should have an MRI as a follow up to the rads, he 1st dismissed the idea on the assumption that we would just be looking for something to be "wrong". He said, "so if it turns out with a result that is negative, what, are you going to have surgery!?" in a very dismissive way. I just want to know what is wrong w/my shoulder. If surgery would be helpful that seems like a conversation to be had AFTER proper diagnostics, not to be dismissed out of hand. He did order an MRI but only after also warning that my insurance might not cover it.
