She gave me Botox. She knew the spots she wanted to inject because they had helped before. I had told her I still had movement and would leave it up to her to find it. She may have had her reasons, but didn't do emg to find other places. No explanation. Felt hurried.

Fifteen minutes with doctor was a good time, put we drive 2 1/2 hrs. each way to get to Vanderbilt. From now on if everything is ok I will use FaceTime on phone.

Explained everything she was going to do before injecting. Always ask about how you feel after her exam or procedure.
