in Central, MO |
With me she was dishonest at first, and later sarcastic, condescending, and completely unconcerned with my pain-levels, mental and emotional well-being, and after-care. Breast cancer is brutal business, and she made it so much worse for me than if I'd had a doctor who really cared. Please find yourself someone else if you are facing this.

Not nice. Made the wrong decision about my surgery. Hateful attitude. Has caused much pain and suffering to me. Please get a second opinion. I'm still suffering, and removed a perfectly healthy area of my body!!!
