I was having pain. I was having a lot of pain, and sometimes I just couldn’t wait until the next day for Dr. Stuckey to get there so I could go in for him to give me some relief. I would some mornings go there before 7:00 and say, “Look, Doc, I am in pain.” He said, “Well, let’s just get on in here and see what we can do.” He would give me some temporary relief until I had a chance to go through the examination so they can exactly tell me what I needed to have.
I can certainly see the result after having a crown put on, to, I guess, to prevent from losing the tooth and to make my life so much easier – because it was miserable, but to make my life a lot better. And maybe to enjoy good food.
He always leave me with the understanding that if something bothering you, you let me know. Don’t hesitate. If this doesn’t do the job, you call me or you come back, and we will do something else. So this is saying to me that “I’m interested in you.”
In addition to that, as I indicated before, there have been a couple instances where I had to go early in the morning, and whatever he was doing, he just stopped doing what he was doing. He said, “Come on, let’s go in the office and we’ll take care of you and give you some temporary relief.”
That’s why I stay with, that’s why I stay with the providers – when they look at me as an individual.
