Overland Park, KS |
Doesn't care about her patients!! Is very derogatory & condescending. Was upset with the fact that I had a few questions to ask concerning my diagnosis. Poor staff
Kansas City, MO |
Dr. Hudson didn't seem to care at all about my medical situation. She appeared to have no empathy.
Dr. Hudson does not seem to have much empathy for patients. She is knowledgeable but I do not feel that she really cares.
