Spent time with our family. She was able to answer all of our questions. She was very compassionate throughout this difficult time.

She didn't want to do any tests because she said my clots were provoked. I asked her to do tests and we found some issues. I'm going to get another doctor to help me for now on. Very unpleasant experience.

She maybe better off selling used cars. Her passive/aggressive personality combined with a phony compassion makes for a horrible doctor. FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR TO HELP YOU.
