      Extremely rude and will NEVER go back to her or recommend her to anyone!
      I would never return to this office. She has messed up my prescription over 3 times now and the office has not handled it correctly. Worst experience with a doctor in my entire life!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
