Very easy to talk about was going with your eyes. Very nice and soft spoken. Very pretty.
in University City |
I have seen her once or twice a year for the last 4 years. She reviews my history before seeing me, does careful exams, answers my questions, and notifies me promptly of test results, once calling me herself at 8pm because she knew i would be concerned. I believe she is an unusually conscientious and caring physician.
Poplar Bluff |
It was a horrible experience. The physician was rude and unprepared. I told that without any informatiin from my previous sugeries, she was really ineffective as the physician. I told her I had driven for 3 hours to see her, she told me it wasn't that far...to me, that was a strange response...perhaps, I'm sorry might have been better:) After spending less than 10 minutes (learning that she knew NOTHING about my case) I told her my appointment was pointless This made her VERY ANGRY!
