I don't like writing bad reviews about people, never have, but this is necessary. The delayed cord clamping was discussed and ignored. She didn't want to be there. Our baby came out while she was five feet away and not paying attention. She just wanted to do an unnecessary c-section. She is rude. Hospital staff referred to her as Dr. Snarky. The nurse at the hospital was great and we should have let her handle the birth. Thank you to the great hospital staff at Banner Desert Medical Center.

Worst Doctor ever. If your looking for a welfare type clinic then this is perfect for you. If you are looking for care, concern or a professional environment, I'd advise looking elsewhere.
