    I would not consider her due to the situation I am currently in. She came to see my daughter in the hospital due to a congenital condition. I never requested to see her. She sent an intern the day my daughter was born & charged me for a 70 min visit. She never saw me on this day yet I am being charged as so. She only visited my daughter the day after she was born for maybe 5 mins. Although nice, she is dishonest w her billing & I am so upset. Once again the hard working young adult gets screwed.
