Patient Comments (2)
in Dunlevy, PA |
I would recommend her. She thoroughly examined me and listened to my symptoms. She provided me with an idea of what I should do to resolve my issues
in Elsewhere, PA |
My daughter has been suffering from severe headaches for more than a year and rather than listening to anything we had to say about our experience, she just kept interrupting, offering advice that didn't make any sense, and insisting that only my daughter's PCP, gastroenterologist, or psychiatrist could prescribe medication. Every one of those other specialists insists that my daughter needs a neurologist. She is patronizing and completely unhelpful.
