Awful! Does not care about the individual patient at all. Acts like you are wasting her time and she does not listen to concerns or needs. There are much better resources out there. No wonder she is accepting new patients and is easy to get an appointment with.

Dr. dismisses symptoms until patient feels foolish and is silenced by Drs. unwillingness to listen at all. Dr. determined within the first minute that what I said was either anxiety or over reacting. Anything I said after that first minute was brushed aside. Two months later, my MRI offered clear evidence that the symptoms with which I presented were founded solidly in reality. Find a doctor who keeps an open mind and truly wants to work with each patient!
