Patient Comments (2)
in Bixby |
Dr Cole is a very arrogant physician who, if asked to complete a surgery when her first attempt is subpar, will shove you off onto someone else. She couldplainly see her surgery had failed to live up to even her own expectations, but instead of making it right, she sends u to someone else. She thinks she is so much better than others. Her demeanor is that of an entitled snob who makes no mistakes
