    All my life I have had severe Rheumatoid Arthritis and have seen many doctors. This doctor has to be the worst! I waited an hour to get a refill on a medication that I have been taking for months and have had no relief. I keep telling her but she ignores me gives me the script than sends me out the door. What kind of doctor is that? Don't become a doctor if you don't wanna help people. My son saw her because he has Lupus and he was told No Percocet for you when he didn't even ask for it.

    Has no regard for considering alternative treatments or supplements that were confirmed to improve my RA as per her Vectra blood tests. CurCumin can be used as a natural anti inflammatory and she said she knows nothing about it. REALLY? What kind of doctor does not want to look into or research a natural supplement, beneficial for numerous conditions, that is clearly helping a patient? wouldn't you want to help others if you did some research and could offer a more natural approach?
    What a quack.. Quick to throw you on expensive meds. Unprofessional Only cares about money.

    Poorly explains conditions and blankly disregards pain. She's in a rush to get you out. On average the wait time is an hour. Many people leave for the ridiculous amount of time they must wait to see the doctor.
