Patient Comments (1)

Laurel, MS |
No likelihood of ever recommending her to anyone. My daughter went to her and she was very rude and disrespectful to her. Had some very colorful language about another patient!! Very very unprofessional! My daughter left there in tears not knowing anymore than when she arrived!
