Dismissive, rude, I have actually seen her lie, she gets explosive if you don't understand the question and need more explaining. I've also seen her first hand lie for her peers to cover their actions

Dr Brubaker left me with a bladder fistula that even she and the Mayo Clinic in Mn. could not repair. This woman ruined my life.
