We couldn’t have been more pleased! The nicest and most knowledgeable staff! I had a super scared son going in, not knowing what to expect and her reassurance and caring nature made him so much more at ease.

Do not go to her! She was very disrespectful to me while I was asking questions regarding my son's endoscopy she just performed. To excuse how rude she was she explained she needed to go eat lunch. The nurse in her office admitted to withholding my son's biopsy results (we already waited weeks for) because she didn't want to ruin our weekend. I told the nurse I needed to wait to take him back in & the doctor got on the phone with me and threatened to withdraw care. We will never see her again!

She diagnosed our six year old with a life long debilitating disease which requires a lot of heavy duty drugs (which she was happy to prescribe) without doing basic labs to rule out other causes or waiting for the path report from a colonoscopy & endoscopy to come back. She told us in post-op that she treats "MANY kiddos" with the same disease. Pretty disturbing.
