Reply
One of the most caring and thorough physicians I have ever seen. Excellent physician and easy to work with in treating my elderly mother. She takes the time to listen and is never rushed. Her office staff is excellent and attempts to assist in any way. We are so blessed to have her knowledge and available treatment in Wilmington area. Her expertise is beyond anything I have ever seen with her treatment of my elderly mother.
