    My experience with Dr. Her son was terrifying. His PA, Stephanie Horning, lied. He yelled at me, a 65 yr old woman, who was already in pain, because I said Stephanie lied. She said if I could eat a Full non clear liquid diet, hold down an Ibuprofen and have a BM She would release me right away. I did it! She lied. I was wrong for calling her a b*&#h and apologized. Dr. B came into my room and lost self control and threw me out of the hospital in the snow at 10 pm. Totally Unprofessional!!
