Patient Comments (2)
New York, NY |
She is the worst physician I have ever encountered in my life. Completely cold-hearted, with zero concern or any form of compassion for her patient and the patient's family. I hope no one ever has an encounter with her similar to what my family and I had. In short: she does not care, she is not diligent in her work (coming to an ICU and taking less than 2 minutes to form an opinion without even observing the patient is not an informative judgment), and she is by far one of the worst physicians.

Awful Doctor! She's arrogant, egotistical and doesn't care about the patient. My mom was having issues and I was speaking to her about it and just spoke down to me like I was 3 years old. She didn't bother to look at my moms history or anything, just say things without any basis or merit. Extremely arrogant! Care for your patients not your paycheck!!!!! If there were 0 stars I would have given it to you!
