excellent doctor, very through, spend time and listens !!
Staff was not prepared. When she conducted her nerve procedure on me, she was messy and unprofessional. Her diagnosis of my condition was innacurate. I went to another neurologist after, and the experience was way better and he diagnosed my condition accurately.
in Georgia |
She was rude,! Non caring , constantly interrupted me, and would not let my husband sit with me for a procedure.
