Patient Comments (2)

Very rude doctor. Does not want to wait to hear your problems and tells me not to say anything and only hear her. Once she is done speaking she leaves the room and does not wait to hear me speak. If you want a doctor who you can talk to and explain your situation do not go to her.

She is thorough in examining my skin with its many moles for precancerous growth. I particularly appreciate that she does not try to sell me beauty treatments.
