Excellent Dr. Listens well and explains in detail. Personally calls with test results. Highly recommend her.

I agree with the other reviewer here, definitely would not recommend her. She is rude and seems very disinterested in her patients. My husband had the flu and she told him he had allergies. She was unnecessarily harsh with my 5 year old, not so family friendly for a family practitioner. Needless to...more

Worst doctor ever. She is very rude and just wants your money. She also doesn't know what she's talking about.
