My provider disregarded my pain. Told me "drugs" were bad. That I did not need pain medication and that my pain would go away without it or with simple tylenol after I expressed I had been rehospitalized for pain and vomiting TWICE. I have 4 broken ribs, a broken wrist, ankle, and just had my hip replaced due to that being broken aswell and my provider provided no relief what so ever and ignores my phone calls to the office.
