She is very knowledgable but despite asking several times for Forteo, she prescribed Reclast Infusion. I had horrifying side effects requiring ER. My heart rate was 150, BP 165/112, fainted, felt like i got hit by a truck! Her response, "You love internet researching, so I figured you would have researched the side effects since your so sensitive to medications." Maybe so, but she is the doctor and should have warned me of "known" side effects.
