Unfortunately I see a lot of bad reviews for this doctor. Honestly, I was scared to try her out. I've been looking for a good doctor in the high desert for years. No joke she is the sweetest and most caring doctor I have ever met. She is thorough and takes her job and patients very serious. Her and...Read More
