She's not interested in building a relationship with you unless you have money. She will not make payment arrangements with you because "people don't pay their balances". I'm an individual.

Dr. Monroe is wonderful! I had the nasty flu that had been going around. My general practitioner couldn't get me in until the following week. A friend told me that Dr. Karen Monroe was amazing and books urgent appointments. In the span of a morning, I booked an appointment for that afternoon with her friendly staff and updated my insurance to accept her as my primary. Dr. Monroe is extremely knowledgeable and kind. You can tell that she takes pride in her work and truly cares about her patients.

Dr Monroe and her staff are fantastic. They not only delivery excellent care but also treat their paitents like gold. In addition Dr Monroe's new office on the Palms of Pasadena hospital campus has beautiful views of the intercostal waterway and each room is decorated with original art. Doctor Monroe and her staff are the best.
I would not recommend anyone to Dr. Monroe. Her bedside manner is horrible, has student physicians do her work for her and screams her diagnosis and prescription advice down the hall in front of other patients. Also, she is fraudulent with insurance and will personally call you to get her money. She has stated she will sue me over a very small amount of money with other expletives. Extremely unprofessional and is obviously in need of cash.

Her nurse does not follow up and as a result certain tests were not done that resulted in several nights at the ER. Dr. Monroe did not show empathy when called to inform her of the danger's of her nurse not following up despite numerous call and promises that she would do so. In this case the lack of follow up became life threatening.
