    Bellerose, NY |
    This has to have been the worst experience I have ever had with ANY doctor. I waited over an hour to be seen and another 30 minutes in the room for her to show up. She has very limited social skills and does not look to help her patients.
    Worse provider I ever saw. Rude and arrogant. Did not have time to explain prediabetes or risk factors. My friend died from diabetes while under her care. Refused to treat a geriatric patient after doing expensive Blood work. Told him to find a geriatrician.

    Worse provider I ever saw. Did extensive testing and then told me to see a geriatrician. A total waste of time. An acquaintance of mine died under her care from diabetes.
