Review for Dr. Sturm

The most condescending and dismissive doctor I’ve ever been a patient to. If you want someone who makes you feel very small and unheard she’s the one for you. Save yourself the trouble and find someone who actually cares.

Review for Dr. Mehrinfar-Zadeh

I have had so much trouble with Dr. Shu, she's impossible to reach when you need her and has made multiple errors in my care. I did find her to have a kind and caring demeanor when speaking one on one, but she has been completely unhelpful if not detrimental to my pots care.

Review for Dr. Shu

Dr Bateman solves problems that other doctors will miss. She has a great personality.

Still alive. Dec 01 2022

Review for Dr. Bateman

Dr. Viswanathan is the most caring and responsive doctor we've ever worked with. She gets back to me quickly and takes care of everything we need. She works with the other doctors that I need with ease and depth.
