We were first time parents of a newborn when we first met her. Her bedside manor was terrible and made us feel so guilty for not giving our baby the hep b vaccination right away. Instead of being professional and educating us about it, she was degrading and absolutely terrible. I would never go back to her in a million years and she should be ashamed of the way she treated us. Stay far away from her if you are looking for a kind, educated, empathetic doctor. She could see i was confused and upset, but didnt care, instead scolded us and said we could not be her patients if we didnt vaccine, which i never said i wanted to, i just wanted to wait another month for hepatitis b. I can't emphasize enough my discontent for this doctor.
