    Very unprofessional, I saw her for a year, if it wasn't for the fact that she prescribed what I asked for I would not have seen her so long. She double books appointments and blames it on others. She failed to submit an authorization form for my Rx for over a month;every time I called to get an update she would say she never received the request from the pharmacy. Said she accepted my insurance but I ended up paying out of pocket because she lied. Over bills insurance and finishes sentences.
