Patient Comments (1)
in Southbridge, MA |
This was the worst physician I have ever met in my life. The worst attitude I have ever seen and I have worked in the medical field for the past 20 years. She treated myself and my daughter like we were nobody, my daughter has severe headaches with a cyst on her brain, slurred speech, very bad memory and I wanted her to be seen and helped, well that is not what I received! She walked into the room and was extremely rude and had no interest in what we were there for, left feeling frustrated.
