She is horrible. Very awkward and does not have good social skills. She seems to only be concerned with the bill at the end of the day. Not actually helping or diagnosing the patient. DO NOT WAIST YOUR TIME ON THIS DOCTOR!
TN |
Contact with staff considered to be mechanical albeit professional. Clinical contact was rushed and impersonal. No records of vitals. Most of the examination was by the nurse. The Dr barely entered the exam room, asked a battery of disconnected questions interrupting one answer to ask another question. There we're no follow up questions to patient's basic complaints. None of the Dr's questions related to the concerns of the referring Dr. There was no attempt of the Dr to offer an explanation...
