This DR. should not be even serving the public as he has no courtesy or the kindness required to be a doctor. I drove 80 miles to see her for the first time and being late 12 minutes due to her staff giving me wrong directions, she refused to see me. I called her office back to inform them about my situation, she did not even have the courtesy to call back and talk to me. I cannot or and neither should anyone else should trust this type of a person or doctor to provide them any kind of care.
