in Vincennes, Indiana |
One of the most caring doctors that I have ever been to. She really listens to you and thinks about your care beyond the appointment. There is usually a long wait to see her, but it is only because she takes her time with her patients. I will take that any day over a doctor who rushes through the appointment.
