Long Beach, CA |
Lacks time management so appointments are rushed. She appears to be arrogant and her opinion is the only one that matters, regardless of what your health history indicates from other well respected physicians. Doesn’t listen well enough and makes snap assessments and judgements.
in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA |
Horrible. Staff chats with each other not regarding medical - gossiping. Stood at window for 3 minutes before staff decided to stop talking and acknowledge patient was waiting for assistance. Inferior communication. Had blood work done, received results from lab which were abnormal - never received communication from doctor to let me know why, and what needs to be done. Called 8 times - no return call. Complete waste of time. I am requesting change of doctor completely
