in Pittsford, NY |
Rudest, most arrogant & disrespectful Dr I have ever seen. Codescending in her communications, does not want to take the time, does not welcome questions, cuts you off & interrupts. No class & no professionalism! Lied on my medical report. Dr has no ethics & has a horrible bed side manner. ...more
