Patient Comments (2)
in Tucson, AZ |
She's very caring & will go "above & beyond" for her patients. My husband saw her on Tuesday & her competent & compassionate staff worked to get him approved for surgery the following Thursday! Our next appointment brought her from 5 to 4 stars. We were seen 1 1/2 late. When the reason is that she takes her time with everyone, I'm OK with that. However, she actually saw a patient with an appointment 1/2 later than us first!!! REALLY ANNOYING! When she did see my husband she was curt & dismissive

She and her staff makes me feel like l am her only patient. The only reason I went to her was cancer on lower eyelid. I was awake during surgery, I remember what they said and was more comfortable than any other surgery (6) I have experienced. I would have my children go to her!
