Patient Comments (2)
Takes her time to explain everything in detail. Never felt rushed. Very warm personality and bed side manner.
in Auburn, NY |
Breast Cancer in 2013 at 39. From the very first meeting, I Loved Loved Loved this woman 3 Brillant doctor!!! Top Notch!! Down to earth, straight forward and really cares about her patients. Can't say enough... Regardless of the 5 hours from my hometown, I am so happy that I was referred to her and that she took my case. I loved the office staff back then but it has changed a few times in the last few years. For whatever reason response time isn't as quick now but still friendly and courteous.
