    Awful bedside manner. Very rude. She thought my 2 year old was my 10 month old! The appointment was for my 10 month old’s eyes and she kept looking at my 2 year old saying “his eyes don’t look bad at all”. Clearly that’s the wrong kid. She didn’t want to listen to my opinion about my child. She disregarded everything I said and summed it up to be clogged tear ducts when he’s been admitted twice in the past month for this condition. I’ve never been so upset leaving a doc appointment.

    Horrible bedside manner. She should stick to research and stay away from patients.
