When she first started she was very sweet. Once she got her experience about a year later,she did a 360. She has a new look and a new mean and nasty attitude to go along with her new makeup and highlights. I was there on time waiting in that long line. I was only 3 minutes late and the girls at that front desks are also extremely rude, loud, and nasty that they picked up the phone to call her and she denied seeing me. STAY AWAY! DONT go see her!

Wouldn’t recommend this doctor to anyone. Traveled over an hour away to see her. I was there and in line before 11:00 am (my appointment time) and prechecked in. By the time I got to the counter, it was 11:02 am. I was told because I was “2 minutes late” I would not be seen and had I gotten to the counter 2 minutes earlier, I would’ve just had to sign one paper and be seen. I waited over a month to be seen by her, only to be turned away. If I could give her zero stars, I would. Terrible.

Felt rushed, she didn't ask me any questions. She made it seem like I was there for no reason and was wasting her time. I had been referred for true medical problems and she didn't address any of them and was walking out the door talking. As a matter of fact, on initial meeting the first thing out of her mouth was "did you refer yourself or did a physician refer you here" She told me she could order whatever tests I wanted but they were all going to be skewed bc I have hashimotos.
