I am new to the area and had to rely on reviews to select a Doctor. I was incredibly upset with my visit. Dr. Soares was gruff and short with me. I went in for a routine physical and was unable to discuss any of my concerns with her due to her lack of bed-side manner. It's a very personal visit and I do not expect much, however a bit of sensitivity is important. Rather than inquiring about my concerns she argued with every bit of info I gave her. I will never return and do not recommend her.
