So disappointed with this Doctor. Horrible bed side manner. My adult daughter went in by herself and this doctor made her feel horrible about herself and about why she was even at her office. Without doing any tests, her attitude was basically "laughing" at her saying she doesn't have this, she doesn't have that - all her issues stem from her being FAT. She mentioned this 4 or 5 times throughout the visit, saying you'll never be thin but....... and, she is a healthy 21 yr old, lovely young girl - even if she does need to lose weight, have a little more tact! This issue has caused much angst for many years, we even considered going to the Mayo for some answers... but, per Dr. Hands, that would be a ridiculous, stupid thought... there's nothing wrong! Very dismissive and not wiling to listen and work together WITH a new patient to get to the bottom of a problem that is a concern to the patient, takes off whether doctor thinks it's nothing. Ugh! What a waste of money and t

I have been seeing Dr. Hands for the past 5 or 6 years. She is probably the smartest doctor I have ever seen. She is no nonsense, direct and efficient. She takes her time to make sure you understand things and has been a great help in managing my health. I would recommend Dr. Hands without reservation!
