Patient Comments (1)
in Ithaca, NY |
I'm sure she's very competent and is a very good surgeon. But with me she crossed the line to downright impolite and sharp when I asked her politely for some information. I can't go to medical school for you. That was uncalled for. I wouldn't have her as my ongoing doctor as I would be unable to communicate with her.
