Patient Reviews (3)
in Queen Creek, AZ |
While a competent surgeon, she has horrible bedside manner. The most amount of time she spent with me was to explain why I needed surgery. She was quite short and not willing to stay in the room to answer questions. Her staff however are remarkable and excellent. The staff should not be thrown into the same bucket as Dr. Somlens.
in Phoenix, AZ |
She is very rude not compassionate at all and say your patient isn't smart cause of there chose in in valve and won't listen to what you think is best for you I am taking my business eale where there is no way I am going to have her operatemail on me
A good surgeon but a lo bedbedside manner not as friendly as everyone says to be I was told to take two Tylenol and go to bed in pain and which I suffered in pain for over a month and a half without any medication I will not use this doctor again she is the not the best doctor in the world and that's a problem with me
