Her primary concern seemed to be running up the largest bill possible. For example, you have to schedule a separate visit to see a nurse before you even get to see her. She has you do an ultrasound in the lab downstairs and then wants to do another one in her office. In contrast, I got a much better evaluation and more information in a free clinic, which included an ultrasound, from Brigham's. She and doctors like her are why medical expenses keep increasing at such a high rate.

Dr Sentissi is a very nice lady, she did a good job with my painful varicose veins. But her phisian assistance is not good, she did a couple of mistakes that cost me a lot of money. I have to do and expensive test twice! Because of her. Also, she supposed give me information about my surgery and treatment and she did not! She is not good.

Worst service I have ever had from a Doctor's office. Per the doctor's order, I had an extensive ultrasound. I called multiple times to find out the results and the next step and no one ever returned my calls.
