Patient Comments (2)

Very poor bedside manner, rude, dismissive and patronizing to the utmost. Additionally, her failure to diagnose infection after surgery lead to a very serious situation and patient was rushed to the emergency room consequently. It's a very sad situation and she has yet to acknowledge any error.
