I saw Dr. Dakin 20 years ago and had a terrible experience with her. I would not recommend her to anyone based on my experience. (misdiagnosis) Fast forward 20 years I have been receiving bills from her office. It is for a patient who has the same name as me, but it is not me. (I actually know the patient). I called her office to tell the staff, she assured me that she would make the change in the system. It's been 2 months and I am STILL receiving the other patients bill...
