    She always and I mean ALWAYS runs late. Even when I make it so I'm the first patient of the day... 30 minutes late! She misdiagnosed my daughter twice. It was as if she was just grabbing at straws instead of telling us upfront, she didn't know what was the problem. We wasted so much time and energy! The most frustrating thing however is she wouldn't look at me or acknowledged my presence. She would only talk to my 11 year old and was extremely rude to her. So very unprofessional. A waste of 8mos
