After getting a lucky break and getting in only two weeks after i called considering shes booked out until july i was thrilled but that quickly chanhed. I spent most of my time during the visit doing what felt like defending myself and why I was there. She made me feel like she was very confused why I was sent to her. Informed me my doctor didn't read my test results correctly. And Shebasically told me nothing was wrong and told me to see a dermatologist and left the room. Never again.
