    Love this woman. She is fantastic. Kind, compassionate, and very, very thorough. I've been a patient for 3 years now and I will never change physicians. She and her staff provide the best service and the quality of care for myself and multiple other family members have never been better.

    She's a really arrogant physician who seems to have problems with men, in general. She routinely practices beyond her scope; is unable to take direction from other specialists in other fields; and she generally unsupportive. Her abilities are fine if you have a runny nose or a cut or need a flue shot, but beyond that, she's not reliable. Her her referral network consists of only physicians in her own medical group, and beyond that, she knows no one and either makes no referrals or poor ones.
