Patient Comments (3)

She arrived late for the appointment and then hurried through it so she wouldn't be late for her other appointments. She didn't explain what things and then called 2 weeks later to diagnose me over the phone and said she was booked for another 3 months so I could be seen after that.

She gave me shots in my back. Literally I looked like a turkey being injected. After crying because I was on so much pain she told me to stop taking my pain medication that I've been taking for 2 years. Then walked out the door. Rude, u professional and acts like you bother her if you have pain......more
