She needs to spend more time with patients. It looks like she doesn't know what shes doing. I needed a checkup and only checked my ears and mouth.

Am so grateful to have found Dr. Shestopalova. This doctor actually listens to your input about what you think you need--for ex., wanted certain tests done and was justifying why (b/c other doctors in my experience think they know everything, and resist doing anything but the minimal)--she cut off...more

Worst Dr office ever. Awful front desk staff. Does not answer pharmacy faxes in a timely manner. Lied to me on the phone and will not cooperate. I literally have nothing positive to say about this office.
