She misdiagnosed me. She doesn't listen and ignored my 30+ year history of fibrocystic breasts. She admitted she didn't review the outside films that I brought in. She ordered new tests and then said the results don't matter. She left on vacation after our first visit and didn't return until the weekend before surgery. She had me sign off on additional surgery just a few minutes before the scheduled surgery- I was already, on the gurney, etc. Then she did even more unauthorized surgery.
