I have a nerve issue, that is not the question. But I got the impression as soon as I was not a surgical candidate it was no longer a nerve issue that he shoudl deal with. He even went as far as mentioning pain in my shoulder could indicate it to originate there. The only issue is I do not have pain in my shoulder. I have pain in my neck.

Dr Paramore is a very nice man who seems to be very knowledgeable about the problem I have with my back. However, he is very dismissive of any other medical conditions I have that I know that have an effect on my back. He only talks about the exact issue with my back and because I don't need surgery he didn't want to talk about anything else. I mentioned to the nurse that I thought I was going to be seeing a different Dr. and that I was disappointed that I would be seeing Dr. Paramore. I wonder if the nurse mentioned my disappointment to him before he came in, I felt that way because when I saw him a month ago he was very curt and totally dismissive of my other health issues that affect my back problems. It was so disappointing. He did not show my husband and I the MRI of my back to explain what was causing my problem. During this appointment we asked him to show it to us and explain it. He did but very briefly and answered questions briefly. He acted very much like a Dr. who was in a hurry to move on. I understand that a physician needs to stay on a schedule and can't spend too much time with each patient or people will be waiting too long to see the doctor. But there are ways to do this without being dismissive and rushed.
