Arrogant, doesn’t listen

Specialist Review

Comments
I saw Dr. Yannolpoulos after a car accident that injured my shoulder in 2014. The shoulder was very painful, and my range of motion very limited. Dr. Y sent me to physical therapy with little result. He sent me back to PT for several more weeks. When that failed to improve my shoulder, I requested he order an MRI. He refused. The last time I saw him, he told me there really wasn’t anything wrong with my shoulder, that I didn’t have a frozen shoulder,that he sent me to PT more sessions than any of his other patients, and that it was probably my fibromyalgia that was causing the pain. I was sobbing at this point. I called my primary who sent me to another orthopedist. This doctor examined me and asked, “Have you ever heard of a frozen shoulder?”. He ordered an MRI, and yes, I had a frozen shoulder. I was sent for more PT, but this time specifically for this diagnosis, and I eventually regained 80% of my range of motion. I would never recommend this doctor.
