She always takes time to listen to any concerns I may have.
in Chicago |
She is extremely rude and seems unconcerned about patient care. She prescribes medication and then forgets what prescriptions she prescribes. Every visit, she seemed rushed and lacked overall attention to detail and concern. I would not recommend this physician to anyone. I woyld truly question her medical credentials & expertise!
Hudsonville, MI |
Extremely negligent and does not appear to care about her patients. Contacted multiple times without reply. When asked for assistance and resources for our elderly family member, her reply was that's not possible and she cannot be saved. We are a family who works in health care and know this to be untrue. Other than her age and deconditioning, she is not actively dying of disease. Shame on this physician for writing off an elderly patient. This is someone who should not be in practice.
