Dr. Anita Pillai-Allen is an excellent Doctor. She is very articulated, explains very well the issue. She provides different solutions, and help you chose what the best solution is for you personally. I will definitely recommend her to anyone who needs help.
in Silver Spring, MD |
Having seen Dr. Anita Pillai-Allen, I would like to warn all intelligent women against seeing her. She comes to an immediate diagnosis (which turned out to be wrong), and will not entertain any questions that might challenge her. Instead, upon hearing the question, she re-iterated her CV, and at the second question, she announced, You're not listening, I already told you what you had! I asked for a differential diagnosis, and she refused to give me one.
