Took my mother to see her ONCE that was enough

Have had 2 appointments for horrible migraines. Both time she was very curt, rushed and not terribly interested in me or my problem. No interest in trying to figure out what is causing the migraines nor in exploring alternative treatments such as accupuncture - just wanted to put me on a medication with HORRIBLE side effects even though I told her I am the type of person who WILL get all the nasty side effects & that I don't handle medications well.

Do NOT use this doctor. You will regret it if you do. I met with Dr Nielsen twice after I had a seizure. Both times she had not prepared for our meeting, rushed through my questions, and was obviously distracted. She was clearly not interested in me as a patient. An example: After she said my post-seizure tests were completely normal, I asked what she thought had been the cause of my seizure. Her response was: I have no idea. I allow everyone one seizure in their life. Ridiculous!

She gave me a memory test and I had one incorrect answer which she stated I should have known. I probably should have known it, however, I thought, being a doctor, she should have known' not to be so rude as to bring that to my attention. I think my normal Doctor probably could have given me the same basic tests that she gave me.
