Horrible doctor! She has no compassion and does not care about her patients well being, only about her pay check. I would never go to her.

I highly recommend this doctor. Easy to schedule appointments, great bedside manner, and takes time to answer all questions.

Would never recommend her. She stitched into my sciatica nerve during my hysterectomy and I had to go back into surgery to have stitches removed. It's been 3 years and I have been in pain every day since. On so many meds I can't even remember them all. And my lawyer said she didn't even do my surgery although she said she did. She was covering up for another surgeon. I live with pain everyday and she tried to blame it on a back problem - which I never had. She lied about many things.
