One of the worst pulmonologist for special needs patients! Runs when a patient needs them and forces early discharge even when it is not the best care for the patient. If you are a normal case she will probably be fine. If you have a special needs patient, RUN...like she did.

I would give this doctor a ZERO if I had that option and I've not even gotten in the door. I've had FIVE appointments "bumped" ... though the number of days in a week, nor the number of hours in a day have changed. Repeated calls to their office garner lame excuses ("the doctors change their schedules all the time") as if a patient's health is so fluid! This doctor may be the best, but she shows an UNACCEPTABLE lack of concern & EXTREME LACK OF RESPECT for their time, and burden of their illness
