I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HER. She caused me to not benefit from my professional degree I got prior to her D and C,laparoscopy. She cut the small bowel,so I woke up in ICU,expected to go home an hour later. Lost more than half blood,she had general surgeon cut me open,8 inches vertical,tremendous pain while parking,never offered plastic surgery garment,would have hurt lot less. Arrogant,never apologized. I'm still in pain today and not working because tried fix her mistake,didnt go well either.
