I saw Dr. Pfitzner once. Three months later, for my follow up, she confused me with another patient and thought that she had last seen me two weeks prior. She apologized and explained that she had recently gotten many new patients. If she is overwhelmed by the number of patients she has she should review her charts the night before appointments, especially since she charges $220 for one-half hour! As a teacher, I spend at least an hour a night prepping for my classes and I make far, far less than Dr. Pritzner.
