Patient Comments (1)
Fremont, CA |
She's one of the worst doctors that I've ever been to!! She's VERY incentive, after surgery all she was interested in was how far I could "climb up the wall"! She forgot to take out my sutures and had to cut the tissue to remove them! How does that happen when you're suppose to be doctor! She also didn't know how to insert the device for radiation, had my daughter hold me down instead of a MA.I could go on and on about her but I won't. Please don't have her do ANY surgery on you she's a butcher!
