    Provider seemed disinterested, I gave diagnosis what I thought condition was. Very poor quick exam, no explanation of condition or any possible differential diagnosis, or suggestion of any lab tests , diagnostic tests, Or radio graphic tests. He just said you need to see a surgeon. 5 minute visit. I have no confidence in my diagnosis from him!
