Terrible, terrible. She bullied me into letting her do a biopsy on my face when I wanted to take it to a plastic surgeon. Now I have a jagged, permanent scar. I’ve never written a review like this, but I want to keep other people from making the same mistake.

She's a fine doctor, but she offers ZERO post-op information. I would like to have been told to expect to have a black eye the next day. For another procedure, I should have been told that the incision would take more than TWO YEARS to heal completely.
