Review for Dr. Moreira

Dr Hohler is a very knowledgeable doctor. However, in my dealings with her, she has been very impatient and business-like, bordering on rude and condescending. Felt like I was bothering her. Hopefully medical competence will be a reason for putting up with a lack of good and kind bedside manner.
