San Diego, CA |
Dr. Fiorella was wonderful. She listen to all of my concerns and was very patient and was extremely knowledgeable on integrative medicine.
in La Jolla, CA |
Textbook definition of thinks they know it all, but knows little. Rude with questionable integrity. Go to a Doc you can trust.
Spring Valley, CA |
condescending, lied about billing. kind of rude.
in San Diego |
She is not a caring person at all. Type of person that went into medicine to make LOTS of money. Too busy to listen to or care about her patients. She reminds me of the joke...what is the difference between doctors and God, God doesn't think he is a doctor.
