Patient Comments (2)
Boston, MA |
I've only seen her once, but she is definitely one of the best doctors I have ever seen (any field). Probably in my top 3 in general and #1 for OB-GYN. I do tend to worry about my health and read internet resources so I always end up having a lot of questions for the doctor. She is sharp, listens, and I felt she showed respect for my concerns without pushing anything other than what I think are 'middle of the road' approaches. Also, the front desk administrator was approachable and professional.

She is pushy for certain birth control, she does not explain any details of different birth controls nor of any other issue even when you ask. She has generic phrases and responses to everything. Her exams are the most uncomfortable I've ever experienced and I've been seen before by two other gynos. She makes everything feel rushed and poorly explained. She does not listen well to your concerns or questions.
