Portland, OR |
The worst bedside manner evere.
in Pendleton, OR |
Great surgeon, very knowledgeable.
in Bend, OR |
She is the doctor that all the doctors went to when it came to saving my eye. She saved my eye after a horrific injury. I would recommend her. However i hope you never need to visit an eye doctor. I'm unable to articulate the gratitude i feel to her.
