Dallas, TX |
It took over a month to get in to see her but after that was much faster to schedule appointments. She didn't make me a surgical patient like the other gastroenterologist (who found nothing). We discussed food and symptoms and was able to calm my problems. I now live in another state and I'm considering flying back up to see her because of how great she was.
Pittsburgh, PA |
Terrible bedside manor. Insulting and rude. Actually cancelled a procedure and went somewhere else so I wouldn't have to deal with her. She scarred me.
