    I thought that Dr. Willingham did not have a very proper bed side manner without all of the information. She was very condescending condescending, excuse me, and you know actually laughed at my diagnosis which is severe bursitis in both of my hips spina bifida Volta and arthritis in my spine. She refused to keep me on a very mild medication that I've been taking for a very long time and wanted to switch me out with Averica which is another controlled substance that has very severe side effects and absolutely refused to give me what has worked for me for several years. She was not a very good doctor and my experience with OHSU has never been*

    Yes, I saw the doctor about 3 days ago. I think or something, 4 days ago maybe. Anyway, I had slit the end of my thumb and I thought it might need stitches. Anyway, I showed it to the doctor and she decided to pull the open wound back together again with glue. And so she cleaned the area and applied the glue, but it was really only applied only to one side of the cut. So it wasn't really pulling the skin together and it, the glue job failed within 24 hours. Now.
