She made me feel like I was being a baby about my symptoms. "You can call it peri-menopause" if you have to call it something." This when I told her something was wrong. I insisted something was wrong. It was. She missed something. She not only discounted what I was saying, she failed to diagnose. If you are having a baby she will treat you well. If you are older, not pregnant, find another doctor.

Got in on time and she was very sweet and understanding. Asked a lot of questions about what I wanted and seemed interested. Went back for an ultrasound on a Friday got called in on time as well minimal wait time. The nurse told me they would call me back with my results on Monday but an hour later they called me back with my results!
