Patient Comments (1)
Brooklyn, NY |
Alarmist, terrible at explaining medical conditions, inaccurate. Unclean and unprofessional office space - her name is not on the door, the place is dirty and cramped, and not a medical facility at all - surrounded by make up artists and sports guys. That could be forgiven if she was a good doctor but she was TERRIBLE. Her diagnosis of me was not just incorrect, but even if she had been right, she was totally unable to explain the medical ramifications and what the condition meant.
