Very caring about a difficult subject. Knew exactily what she was doing and explained everything very clearly. I felt better as soon as I finished the appointment. The staff and office was wonderful also.

Argued with prior doctor's recommendation. Didn't believe my symptoms. Wouldn't properly diagnose me. Not sure why she's in medicine.

Beyond the worst experience with a doctor ever. You expect to see a woman for an understanding and sensitivity to women's issues- not here. Curt, condescending, and beyond arrogant. Do NOT see this awful person. 0 stars if possible
