I love her. So sweet and kind. Very patient and caring. You feel relaxed. She listens and develops a plan of action that doesn’t leave you hanging. You can have a lot going on, and she doesn’t make you feel like you’re imagining it or are a freak of nature. Grateful to be in her care and just blocks from my house. Lucky me.

I needed surgery and she explained everything that would happen and everything to expect afterwards. I was so at ease heading into surgery.

She very poor at prescribing medicines (She prescribed one medicine and situation went bad and went to another doctor and they were asking who asked to take this medicine?) Lack of experience with tests, Worst experience. If you ever wants to get more panic, tensed, ready to spend more money, she is the perfect one.
