She is wonderful. She was in Oneida when I delivered and ended up following her to Utica because I love her so much. She is down to earth, friendly, honest and exactly what women need in an OBGYN. I can’t say enough great things about her.

Unprofessional. After my delivery I heard she was saying unflattering things about me that made staff uncomfortable.
