in Newton, NJ |
I wish their was less then one star. She may be the WORST doctor in the state of NJ. She will send your child for a million unnecessary tests because unfortunately that's how some dishonest neurologists make their money. I went for 2 second opinions BOTH of whom thought she was out of her mind....more
