Patient Comments (1)
Dr. Geisser prefers you see her nurse practitioner. Often they repeat the conversation you had with her NP in front of you thus infantilizing the patient. Dr. Geisser refused to treat me unless I agreed to take a drug which had given me numerous disabling side effects. She is rude, does not care about patients and belittles her patients experiences. She and the nurse will leave you alone in the office while they literally talk about you behind your back. She isn't not a caring or competent Dr.
