I asked Dr. Samuelson to predict how long the pain would continue in my hip after I was hit by a car. Instead of offering guidance, he berated me for not taking more pain medication, suggested that my injuries "may or may not have been the result of the injury" despite the fact that I have no history of hip pain until the accident, along with huge bruises. I found this uncalled for and offensive. Plus I left without the information I sought.
