"Not even read noted"

About: Kettering General Hospital

The doctor had not even read my notes to see what arm the we're testing let alone if my previous medical history could have been the cause to the problem. My opinion didn't matter to the doctor and they didn't listen to my concerns. The doctor asked how I am with needles and regardless of me saying that I am better when lying down I got told it doesn't go in very far and they just stuck the needle in. Since the emg testing I have been in more pain than I was before.
