This has far has to be the worst doctor I have ever seen. The staff is bias and untrained on new medical conditions. The doctor herself is still living in the past and likes to base her diagnosis around age and race.

The worst doctor ever. She is absolutely no help. I always have to repeat myself when talking to her because she does not understand. Honestly don't know how she became a doctor.
