Patient Comments (2)
My spouse saw this doctor for pain in the kidney area a few years ago. He was in good health at the time. She diagnosed him with a cyst on his kidney and "kidney failure"! This was such a misdiagnosis that caused him great concern. He has no kidney disease at all. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone.

I have been seeing her for around 5 yrs or so. She is an excellent Dr and I would never consider changing. I would have died had it not been for her. I rate her the highest possible!
