I never met a Surgeon so disrespectful in my life. Lack of professionalism poor bedside manner as we'll as compassion. Her Medical Manager Erica for a split second seemed to be okay.Until she obviously is unable to handle a persons frustration and lack empathy and or sympathy for canceIling on me an hr before my appt. Instead pointing out I'm not their only patient. Asking me to put myself in in an emergency position.Even though I feel like my situation is of that nature. Much more info come

Dr smith is an awesome doctor. Her office is one of the worst I've ever been in. I will be looking for a new doctor because of it. I always have to wait around 2 hours. Almost one before they even acknowledge I am here. By the time I see the doctor I don't want to talk to here because I've been waiting for so long.

I consider Dr. Smith to be my heroine. I feel very fortunate to have been led to her for my breast cancer surgery. She is an excellent surgeon. While she might not be the most touchy feely doctor around, I wasn't looking for touchy feely. I wanted a doctor who knew what she was doing. I would not consider going to any other doctor if I ever have any future breast related issues.

Good surgeon, horrible bed side manner. I think she needs to retire, runs surgery like an assembly line. You are a number only to her.

I am very upset! She did my surgery didn't give me pain medication told me to take Tylenol! Her nurse or ma had go all the way to her office from los Lunas which the intentions that she was going to help me I waited two hours for her response while I waited in a room for nothing! Who is she deciding tha many pain from surgery is not enough for pain control medication! I am laying I my bed day two of surgery in tremendous pain and no one to help me! I feel like I chose the wrong Dr!
in Albuquerque, NM |
She is one of the most gifted beast cancer surgeons in the country. Not touchy-freely, but straight-forward, all-business and extremely competent. I chose her because she has the best outcomes in our region.
