    I explained that I need to take 1 tramidol every morning. Doctor Heckman prescribed 7 pills. Also he asked and explained that the prescription were for 1 month. He prescribed 21 of my pain medication. To me these amounts were adequate for a week. I enjoy Doctor Heckman, he is always helpful, informative, and caring. I Probably didn't explain myself well.
