Been a patient for a few years, and only see her when I injure something. I never feel rushed. She always listens and has reasonable and useful feedback. Very personable and doesn't do needless tests, yet takes the time to properly assess and prescribe appropriate treatment (often Physical Therapy). I think she's great!
