There is no way to schedule an urgent appointment with her. She doesn't care. I was send to ER for a shoulder pain because she refused to see me. I was in a lot of pain so I had to go. But the ER Doctor was like really? That was something that she should have been able to do, it took less than 20 min to be prescribed some pain medications.

She is rude, and a horrible doctor. I don't recomendable her or her clínic. Look somewhere elss where you can find a better doctor with better care quality. From 0 to 10, I'll give her -infinite..... They didn't give me a referral, because she was trying to get more money from Medicaid... I had to leave my specialist office because she didn't sign the referral, after 3 months of waiting for this appointment. This is just shameful in every word possible...
