If you value your life, do not go to this woman. My mother was a patient and was never given a diagnosis of her problem. My mothers story Is too exstensive to relay on this site. All this "doctor" did was order test and scans. But we never go answers. She even told my mom that she probably needed to see a psychiatrist!! Implying the pain was all in her head!!! Get out of Her office now!! Get a second opinion!! This survey makes you do a star rating, she doesn't deserve a star!!!

Always a long wait time - appointments always take at least 2 hours. The doctor also ordered an imaging test for my daughter, who is the patient, and the order wasn't even signed. The imaging center staff had to contact her office for the signature. Again, having to wait. If you don't value your time, this may be the doctor for you as they don't value it as well...

While a client of hers my esophagus closed totally I was unable to eat any food for over a month, I called her office constantly begging for assistance but who ever answered the phones said they were giving her messages but I never got a reply. Finally after 2 weeks of no replies I called my general dr. In tears & he called her & had her finally contact me that she had plenty of clients that were living on ensure drinks & I would be fine until I could get into the mayo clinic 4 weeks later!
