Patient Comments (1)
in San Diego, CA |
This dr is very cold and loves to suspend people's drivers license in every opportunity she can. Meeting her for the first time, she would ask if you had any seizures in the last 6 months. If you say yes, BAM! She races around and report to suspend your license immediately. No chance for explanation like wrong medicine, etc etc. I understand the State of CA requires to report if any seizures in the last 6 months but there are neurologists who are very reasonable based on my experience.
