Care Philosophy

Best doctor ever. She always knew what she was doing, and she did perfect. There is a reason for everything she does. So that person that gave her ONE star? liar. That person didn't understand the depth of their problem, and they didn't think about the fact that Dr. Verka may not have had as much information as the person to whom recommended the patient to. Dr. Verka knows more than any person who I've ever met in my life. She's there every step of the way. May God bless Dr. Verka's soul!

Expereince with Dr. Verka is good. But overall waiting time is horrible in Duke. Nobody respects for patient's time. I had to wait for 30-40 mins after arriving on time before doctor finally saw me.
