I wanted options but was told since he was a "surgeon" he had surgical recommendations. Wanted alternatives to surgery but was ultimately pushed in the direction of surgery. Difficult position to be out in. The provider seemed very rushed and it was very cut and dried for him. Never had met him before and he was just like, let's do surgery tomorrow!!
