She did not agree with anything I ask. Simple request to change my vitamin for capsules that I took for years instead of tablets that she gave me was to much to ask. She is rude. In my first appointment she was very suspicious of me leaving my previous doctor and ask if I paid for my last visit with previous doctor. She is disrespectful to you as a patient and as a person. She gave me refferal to specialist and she is actually marked me in this refferal. No way I can trust my health to that.

She is incredibly smart, thoughtful, and follows up quickly. She does not rush you and tries to connect you to resources needed. I've appreciated her care and the time she has dedicated to me.

Lost my doctor because she could no longer take my insurance. Had to take the only person available during COVID for an accident (a fall I had). This doctor was very cold and impersonal...ignored why I was there and just tried to change medications that had been working because she did not agree with my previous doctor or myself. This had nothing to do with my visit. Does not give patients autonomy or any say over their health. Very controlling and condescending. When I said it was not a good fit and I would be looking else where I received a letter saying I could never go back. As if that was initially her decision. So to cover herself she wrote nasty notes in my chart that now follow me. She also never followed through with the reason I was there. I am also a professional and believe she miss-uses her power. Patients please be aware as this has caused me quite a bit of suffering and grief going forward at a very difficult time. I would not wish this experience on anyone.

Condescending/rude. Not helpful.. when I was asking medical advice, instead of being professional, she was condescendingly laughing at me (while assuming before asking intentions), picking apart my symptom wording like a lawyer instead of considering that people use different words to describe the same symptom, and rather than communicating effectively, she misinterpreted my "okay" to getting tested (as in, sure/ sounds great/ yes) as "now you're changing your mind" ....when in reality I wasn't at all..she needs to be trained on how to talk to people of all walks of life... I usually just bite my tongue, but the way that she treated me like some "dumb patient" and even at one point assumed I would forgo safety precautions if i test negative (absolutely wrong), it was very ignorant, lacked dignity, prevented me from accessing medical evaluation. I feel sorry for anyone who has a serious medical concern or ailment and is in her care. Yikes.

She has very poor people skills and is very difficult to both work and communicate with as a patient. She is not a very strong advocate for her patients either. Whenever I needed something I essentially had to pull teeth to get anything done. She is also the type of doctor that will give you pills and send you home for a few days without following up to see if you have benefited from the medication or not. She is a nice lady, but a very negligent physician. I would NEVER recommend her.
