"I was placed on heavy duty prednisone with no improvement. The wrist is bruising and still swelling after 4 days on heavy duty prednisone . I’m at the point that I believe the splint I was given is too tight and is causing the swelling and bruising which was never suggested at my last appointment which was about 5days ago. It is troubling to me . Everytime I have X-rays I’m told the break in my wrist is healing fine. Pain is very low or nonexistent most of the time. Don’t like continuously calling the office especially on holidays with these concerns. Makes me very uncomfortable. On the bright side I have seen the doctor or his PA when requested. And I don’t like taking high doses of prednisone. Even for a short time. requested. "

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
