Patient Comments (1)
in Fairport, NY |
The most caring, attentive, encouraging and thoughtful physician I have ever met. I would strongly recommend her to anyone needing such care. This is the first time I ever had a physician cancel an appt because of bad weather- rather I was refused to be seen by another doctor when I drove through a blizzard to make my appt and was 25 min late. Words cannot express how much my wife and I really feel about her.
