Doctor :   May I know your age and gender?
User :   did you read my question? what do you think about the hgh? male...30
User :   please dont waste my time...i only have 15 minutes and i want as much info as possible
Doctor :   The type of treatment that is necessary depends on the severity of the injury that is associated.
