She made appointments for me twice and didn’t even call and tell me about them. I called and left messages at her office to see what the new appts were for and she would not call me back and explain anything to me and staff was rude and said “we already told her you called...we’ll tell her again but you have to wait for her to call you back, which she never did that day. When she came into the exam room she stood in the door and said... so do you have any questions... I had heard from another family member who had seen her, to switch drs... now I can see why... no bedside manners, doesn’t take the time to talk to you and ignores you when you do try to get answers. I will be switching drs.
