I would never recommend her to anyone. She is rude, rushes, unclear with instructions and talks over you. I should've checked the reviews out prior, but it was an emergency appointment. I'll suffer before I go back to her ever again.

Wanted to treat me like a robot when my type one diabetes can not and should not be treated as such. Very unfriendly staff. I dreaded coming back to my appointments. She did not listen to me as a patient, just kept telling me the same things.
