I found this Physician to be arrogant , and judgmental. As our situation was an out of the box , it was clear after a few visits, that she was not in the business of looking for the underlying cause. Eventually we would make appointments with the other physicians. Despite an honest relationship, she discharged us from her practice citing false claims. It took time, but after many months, a test was run and a medical diagnosis was found that caused most of the problems.
