She is book smart but not wise- incapable of offering solutions, too happy to hand out meds and no different options than any PA can offer - don't waste your time or good $$$$ on this one

Dr. Onofrei was so thorough she asked many questions and was never in a hurry and she wants to help, she calls you back personally to see how you are doing and that is almost never done these days. If they cannot answer the phone and you leave a message you will hear back even if it is after 5, she has called me around 6, if I don't answer she tries to call me back. She involves other Dr.'s to discuss your case and advises you every step of the way, she is beyond amazing!
