Patient Reviews (2)
Boca Raton, FL |
I would never recommend this physician to anyone that I truly cared for. When she entered to the room, she immediately began to chastise me for not having the proper documents faxed to her the day before. This was before a proper introduction. She made very light of my recent cancer diagnosis, and questioned treatment prognosis of my prior Oncologist in Lake Mary, Fl., whom I respected and would not have changed, had I not relocated to Boca just days before. Bedside manner of mortician! RUN!!
