Patient Comments (4)
in Dayton, OH |
Always accomodating, extraordinary knowledge and patient care. Fantastic doctor!!
in Xenia, OH |
I wish I could give this doctor zero. I've never had a pediatrician with more of a God-complex than this woman. My daughter had a *diaper rash* and she tried to diagnose it as MRSA! Then she tried to diagnose my petite daughter with failure to thrive, COMPLETELY ignoring the fact that her entire genetic lineage is petite. She is demeaning and disrespectful if you question her, she accused me of neglecting care for my child. Ordered unnecessary traumatic tests then refused service when I refused.
Very knowledgeable!

I can never seem to actually schedule an appointment with her when my kids are actually sick. The only times we get in to see her is for a wellness visit, but when my children are sick we are always told to go to urgent care. Seems kind of pointless to have a doctor that can't ever see your kids if they are sick...
