Patient Comments (3)
San Diego, CA |
She was very careing and professional. She was interested in my problems. I felt lucky to have her as my Dr. I trusted her.
in Vista, CA |
Saw her as an outpatient. No empathy. She should limit practice to hospital critical care.
in San Diego, CA |
She minimized my pain and was quite condescending. She is not helpful at all and I will definitely not be returning. In addition, her staff is so rude to say the least. If Dr. Elias is not available, they will not allow you to see a partner because it disrupts continuity of care. Since then, I have become Dr. Hekier's patient at Sharp. He's a wonderful guy with a helpful, warm staff. Don't waste your time with this lady.
