    She should not be allowed to practice medicine in the US. She is a quack! Went to this woman for over a year and she almost made me lose my life by taking me off my high blood pressure medicine.

    Leaves no stone unturned when it comes to health screening.

    Rude and unprofessional. I needed a travel vaccine which I got multiple times before, but he office staff insists you to do the whole entire physical before. They insisted even of doing heart tests before admiring simple vaccine shot. They just want to bill your insurance. The staff did not even allowed for me to speak with the doctor. What a waste of my time.I asked to use a bathroom and was told that there is no water in the office, and told me to go to Starbucks how do they wash their hands?

    I have never been to a physician who exhibited just plain greed!!!! My first appointment with her I didn't even meet her, lab work and vital signs were done by staff who then told me I would be called with the results. I told the staff my thyroid levels would be abnormal and that I am being followed by an endocrinologist. I'm called to come to her office for abnormal test results thyroid result and they tried to charge me. When i refused she was hostile. I would never recommend her to anyone!!!

    I was floored by a follow-up phone call by her staff to check on me. I didn't think this kind of personal care still existed. My entire experience from booking the appointment to the actual visit itself was wonderful. Who knew visiting the doctor could be so enjoyable!
