She is one of the kindest and most compassionate doctors I have ever met. She knows her craft and I would recommend her to anyone!
in Point Pleasant, NJ |
One of THE best of not best in the industry. Always there when we need her help even if we just call to ask a question. She calls from her office at 7pm to speak to the parents regarding the concerns they have. We are lucky to have her as a member of our team, and truly appreciate the input that she has.
