The doctor that did her surgeries has told her to just deal with it and wont help her. I am looking for a knee specialist that will help my mother. Most doctors say they wont help her because she has already been seen by this previous doctor. I feel i need to do something, I need to find my mom a doctor that will help her! Thank you so much
In looking up Waverly, Iowa, I see that it is a fairly small town. I wonder if it would work for you to go to the nearest large city and get a second opinion?
Perhaps in a small town the doctors are reluctant to see the patient of a fellow doctor, not wanting to fnd fault with their work?
Professional courtesy so to speak?
If you have a computer and know how to research with a search engine, maybe you could find doctors this way and make an appointment. Please let us know how this goes.
