She is a very intelligent woman with a lot of knowledge, but has 0 compassion, doesn't listen to her pts. I had been prescribed estrogen, as well as many different birth control medications. My ins. changed and I had to switch to Sprintec. I started having an allergic reaction with it. She refused to prescribe me anymore BC pills until I went through testing to see if I was allergic to estrogen. RIDICULOUS! I was taking estrogen RX, it was just the brand Sprintec! Wait X is crazy!
