She incompetently misread a basic lab report and told my wife she had a deadly neurological disease she didn't have. Multiple tests clearly said my wife tested NEGATIVE for the disease, but since she is either lazy or overbooked (at least a one hour wait every appointment) it appears she only gldanced at one of the tests and conveyed the wrong info. She made us think for nearly a week that my wife had a deadly disease because she REFUSED to admit fault. AWFUL Doctor. AWFUL person. Avoid!!!!
