What People Say About Dr. Maria Rosario Ferreira, MD
Reply
Knowledgeable and informative, but extremely unempathetic. I felt uncomfortable sharing my story or my emotions on my particular issue. Assumptions were made about my health within the first 10 minutes of ever speaking with Dr. Ferreira, and I felt like I was seen as naive, and as someone who has dealt with my condition for the past 6 years, I was spoken to in a very condescending manner and felt disrespected throughout the entirety of my appointment.
