HORRIBLE PT SERVICE! I will never schedule with her again! She is a horrible Dr.! She doesn’t take the time to help you!She told me that she didn’t have time to do a procedure that was mandatory! She ignored me when I asked questions, and talked over me! And she has the nerve not to accept Medicaid, I felt like I cramp after the way that she talked to me.My abscess drained while we were talking.. and she just handed me some sterile gauze and peroxide and had me clean myself! Very UNACCEPTABLE!!

Will send you home with a bunch of products at once and won't tell you how or when to use any of them. If you tell her the products aren't working, she'll just pile on more products instead of changing them. More products sold equals more money. As far as I'm concerned that's all she cares about. She giggled at me when I said I hate looking at myself and all I want is to be happy with myself when i look in the mirror. Never going back again.

Dr. Jester took time to answer my daughters questions about psoriasis. She was nice, patient and listened. I would highly recommend.
